During my review, I choose to go with the iPad version of the app. Both of my kids really enjoyed ‘The Nativity Story’ and what all it offers. Both of my kids enjoyed, the two ways to enjoy the app. Either you can read the story on your own or you can have the story read to you. Dominique prefers to read the story while Conner loves for the story to be read to him.
The narrator does a great job and is able to be understood very easily. The kids really enjoy being able to interact with the story from moving the animals, opening doors, and much more. I think this is a great and interactive way to share ‘The Nativity Story’ with my kids.
