What's APPening? Holiday Cheer
● By Aimee Cormier
Even grownups want to know just how long it is until our favorite holiday arrives. The Christmas Countdown app helps us keep track, with sweet old-fashioned graphics, and favorite Christmas tunes like “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies,” “Jingle Bells,” “Oh Christmas Tree,” “What Child is This” and others. Choose your favorite background from a snowman, Santa, reindeer, an elf or create your own from your photo library, and awake each morning knowing exactly how long you have to wait until Christmas morning! Cost: $0.99.
This darling interactive book app features Tacky the Penguin and his pals Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly and Perfect in their Christmas adventures in Nice Icy Land. Little ones can explore pictures and vocabulary with highlighted narration, tap-to-hear words and other great features for children ages 4-8. One of our favorite features allows users to record their own narration of the book to share. Join Tacky as he saves the day with a special gift when a group of hunters try to nab the penguins. Cost: $4.99.
