The Night Before Christmas - Enchanted Tales

December 12, 2011

By: Carisa Kluver

The Digital Media Diet

Not the traditional poem, but a whole new holiday tale ...

This digital book app is based on a straight-to-dvd animated movie from 1995. It is NOT based on the traditional poem of The Night Before Christmas. Instead this title follows the story of an orphan named Jeffrey who lives in a toy factory. He begins giving toys away to other orphans with lots of suspenseful plot twists. In the end there are toys that come to life and a conclusion that brings a happy ending to Jeffrey and all the other orphans. The app is solidly made with highlighting word-by-word with the polished narration. For a title this long, a page-guide would be very useful, but alas is not an option with any of the omBooks. Otherwise, this is a great treat for Christmas, engaging children in an original story with all the elements that made the original movie a favorite.

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.
