Most families have a few traditions that are passed down through the generations. It could be the simplest thing, or one that is popular and also shared by many throughout the world. After Clement Clark-Moore wrote his beloved poem, "Twas The Night Before Christmas", Christmas Eve was never the same again for boys and girls throughout the land! It has become a classic tradition in many households to sit at the knees of parents and grandparents to read this familiar, delightful and magical poem. You can now read this Christmas story on your iPad thanks to the book app, The Night Before Christmas!

This app is presented in animation. Many of the moving objects including Santa himself appear as though they are brightly painted wood figures reminiscent of old-fashioned, chunky wooden puzzles. The graphics are brilliant, cheery and all characters have happy smiles on their faces. The 3D effect is mesmerizing and definitely has a eye-opening effect on the reader! I particularly got a laugh out of Santa's bag of goodies called "Pressies" (short for presents), as I have often used the same word myself!

Children may choose to read the book by themselves, or have it read to them. Little ones will love being able to turn the pages at their own pace so they can enjoy the high-res color and animations in their entirety. When they are ready to move on, it only takes one tap of either arrow at the bottom of the page to move forward or backward. For parents who may want to move around a bit quicker, use the Menu option to navigate to any page. Your children will learn through sight and hearing all the nuances and meanings of words, as well as enjoy the lovely poetic rhythm of this classic treasure.
COOL CONCLUSION: The Night Before Christmas is a delightful, stimulating and cheerful talking book app that you will definitely want to share with the family this Christmas!
