Parents and grandparents will love its nostalgic style, as they share together the story of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Love this app! Great for my 4 year old!

I downloaded this app and was pleasantly surprised on what a great little Christmas story book this was. It's not a detailed version of the Christmas story, but it was great at getting my son involved in the Christmas narrative! The only thing wanting was a bit added concerning the Magi.

Colorful, Interactive and Awesome!

This App is colorful, interactive and tells a great story - that of Jesus' birth. The illustrations have a pop-up book feel to it which gives it real character and lends to the story. The whole story is set to rhyme which my kids loved. Not only can you read or listen to the story itself but there are tons of interactive opportunities woven throughout. Red boxes will appear next to characters - when pushed they will make additional comments or ask and answer questions to other characters. Windows can be opened, ropes can be pulled, the donkey can be moved with the swipe of your hand and so much more. And I love the band of angels at the end. You can choose which angels and their instruments are playing during the song Noel. In short, your whole family will enjoy this one, truly unique.

Fun for kids of all ages

This is a fun interactive app for kids to show the Nativity Story and help them see what Christmas is all about. Children can follow along in the story as Mary & Joseph travel by donkey to find a place to stay so Mary can have her baby. When all the rooms are full, what are they going to do?

Although the interactive app is fun for kids of all ages, it is not biblically correct, so as long as parents or grandparents don't expect the story to be told as the Scriptures tell it, this is a fun app for kids. My youngest loves moving the donkey around on the page, nodding it's head, opening doors and windows and hearing the conversations of the people on each "page" of the "book." The fun interactions are great for children to help keep their attention and show how fun it can be to read books even ebooks. I love that there are two choices - read it yourself - or "read to me" for children who can not yet read it themselves. Such a great app for this Holiday Season.
