Favorite Magical Christmas Picture Books

Favorite Christmas Picture Books

I was combing the bookshelves to clean them out and ran across our little pile of Christmas books that I’ve save through the years.  I read them last night to my youngest but my oldest, now 11, saw the pile and took her favorite, Auntie Claus, to read even though she was supposed to be studying for a test.  She returned it  10 minutes later with the pronouncement, “That is a good book.”  This is a particularly good book for responsible older sisters, particularly the self-sacrificing type,  which might explain why she loved it.  It will always be on our shelves at Christmas for her because that is the power and magic of picture books: You Never Out Grown Them!

The Lorax by Dr. Seuss ebook App

Dr. Seuss eBook Apps Are Wonderful!

I can not rave more about OceanHouse Media’s Dr. Seuss iPhone app books and iPad app books. They really get it. The ebook is a different medium than a print book and therefore should have different — ENHANCED — functionality that truly makes it a different, and yes, possibly better, experience than a traditional book. Of course, that is not to say that a snuggle-up-bedtime-book can never be replaced, and you probably wouldn’t snuggle up with your child at bedtime on your iPhone reading your ebook (unless you are on vacation and ran out of good reading material), but maybe with an iPad you would.
