Wubbzy’s The Night Before Christmas is a Christmas storybook for young readers.
The night before Christmas, Wubbzy and his friends are snuggly-snug in their beds until they hear the pitter-patter jingle-jangle and merry sounds of Santa Claus and his reindeer. …
The story is an adaption of the classic The Night Before Christmas Holiday poem, with interactive features and more. Kids can tap on the reindeer’s red nose to see it shine, or tap on the holiday lights to see them light up, or tap on Santa to hear him say Merry Christmas, or put a gift under the tree, or send him back to the chimney.
Kids can do some activities while reading the book. They can help Santa navigate through the sky avoiding hitting any floating objects; or decorate the Christmas tree by moving the ornaments onto a tree to match the empty space left on the tree; or dress up the snowman.
While the book is read, each individual word is highlighted to help the early word recognition. After the page is read, if a child wants to learn a particular word, he/she can tap on just one word to hear it be read aloud.
I like the Grown-up’s Corner. You will see suggested questions to ask kids after reading. There are two groups of questions, one group is to test kids understanding of the book, the other group is suggested topics that go beyond the content of the book for further discussions.
Make sure tap on the Menu at the bottom left corner of the screen. You will see options to watch some holiday themed music videos, coloring and painting activities, and games. If your child likes a particular page, here is the place to pick one page to read without going through the whole book.
The videos are fun with catchy songs and funny animation. They will definitely lift the holiday spirit, and you don’t want to miss them. The painting and coloring activity pack includes all pages from the book. Kids can choose different colors and thickness of the strokes. They can also use stickers. The game section has all 3 games in one place, and kids can play with them as many times as they want.
Overall Wubbzy’s The Night Before Christmas is a fun Christmas book app that kids will enjoy. Those added features and activities will be great for some downtime during the busy holiday season. They will also be great travel activities.
Wubbzy’s The Night Before Christmas is available for iPhone, iPod and iPAD. It is also available for Android on Amazon and Google Play, as well as Nook. It is $2.99.
