Billy and the Snowman HD - an interactive Christmas tale

December 8, 2011

By: Carisa Kluver

The Digital Media Diet

Billy builds a snowman but can't find a carrot nose ...

This is an adorable little tale about a boy named Billy who is very excited for Christmas. But his long list of the presents he most desires turns out to be much less important to him than getting Santa to bring a carrot to complete his snowman. Just as requested, Billy finds a carrot in his stocking and is delighted to give his precious snowman a way to breathe. The app has lots of interactive elements for young readers to play with, although most are not related to the storyline. Text is in an easy to read font (although it does not highlight as narrated) with simple arrow page turns. Featuring nice illustrations and narration, this is a sweet tale to share during the holidays.

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.
