Jingle is an adorable husky pup that loves all the children who go to Pineville Elementary School. But Jingle doesn't have a home of his own. He follows the children all the way to their bus stops and doors but when they tell him to be a good dog and 'go home' he doesn't have anywhere to go. The story has a heartwarming ending, though, courtesy of Santa's intervention. This Hallmark book app is intended to work in conjunction with their 'story buddy' stuffed animal of Jingle, but other than a brief mention of the toy at the beginning of the book, this book app is delightful all by itself. The app is very lightly animated, narrated and includes the ability to record your own narration. Also includes 16 puzzles (based the story's pages), a Xylophone and a Christmas tree to decorate.
