Twas The Night Before Christmas iPhone App Review.

The night before Christmas is definitely the most magical night of the year. The tree with its beautiful ornaments, all those delicious dishes cooking in the oven, the milk and cookies, the smell of apple and cinnamon, the decorations, the carols...all these things make Christmas look like a fairytale. And what better way to spend the night before Christmas than reading to your child one of the most beautiful Christmas stories of all time: 'Twas The Night Before Christmas. Now available in the AppStore, as part of Blackfish Children's Books.

Magical Christmas e-book

'Twas The Night Before Christmas is a magical story your child can now enjoy even more than before. Because, with this e-book, the graphics are better, the story is more interactive, and the beautiful message of the story isn't the only thing your child is going to remember after reading this.

"Read to me" option

Now, all you need to do to enjoy this wonderful e-book is purchase it from the AppStore, or through Blackfish Children's Books, if you already have this app installed. The rest is as simple as it gets. You can choose to read the story to your child or use the "read to me" option of the e-book, and let your child enjoy the story while it is being read by a professional. The advantage of using this option is pretty clear: you get to finish those last minute Christmas chores, and keep your child entertained at the same time. But also, he can actually get to exercise his vocabulary, because as the story is being read, the words are highlighted when they are spoken by the reader.

Beautiful graphics for a wonderful story

As far as design is concerned, 'Twas The Night Before Christmas is a total eye candy. The drawings are extremely well done and beautifully colored, plus there's a catch. With every page he turns, your child is one tap away from discovering all sorts of moving images that make the characters look even more alive. And this is also a bit of a game actually, since at the end of the story he finds out just how many of the total number of moving images he discovered. Oh, and as far as the background sound is concerned, what could be more appropriate than a classic story tune that makes you think of reindeers, bells ringing, and Santa going down the chimney with his bag full of surprises.

All in all, you'd have to be a Grinch to say that 'Twas The Night Before Christmas is not a lovely, beautifully designed, written and read Christmas story. Of course, more Christmas games, along with the story, would probably make it even more appealing to children. But there are some stories that just keep you mesmerized no matter what. And 'Twas The Night Before Christmas is definitely one of them.
