Cute storybook about the excitement of a chilly Northwest winter by Puget Sound native and Alaska resident, Ann Dixon. Wonderful educational enhancements are the main perk of Auryn Apps digital re-imagining of this 2002 print title. Words highlight as narrated word-for-word & interactivity is strictly informational. Tap any word in the text to hear the audio again or tap any image to hear and see the word. Color-drenched illustrations & nice page-layouts in this digital title make for one very nice seasonal read.
This title is one of over two dozen titles briefly reviewed for a special post in our blog for the winter holidays, 2011.
All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.
