Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that PopOut! The Night Before Christmas is a charming retelling of the classic holiday tale. Younger children can enjoy the interactive version on their own, while those who are learning to read will be able to practice reading with a familiar story. Young readers can tap words on the screen for prompts when they get stuck. The pop-up elements, meanwhile, are seasonal, non-intrusive and numerous -- and fun regardless of your age.
Is it any good?
Following its charming PopOut! The Tale of Peter Rabbit, Loud Crow Interactive turns its talents on this Christmas standard in terrific fashion. Besides being a good story, POPOUT! THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS is also a good learning tool. And the pop-up elements are wonderful additions to the story, using sound and movement in terrific fashion. Each page has several interactive elements that encourage poking the screen or tilting the device. Finding them is half the fun. The narration and music are festively appropriate and calming (which isn't a bad thing at this time of year).
