A Very Mice Christmas by Wendy Wax:
A Very Mice Christmas is an adorable book that captures the joys of the holiday season as festive little mice do their Christmas shopping, searching for such items as woolly stockings and shiny ribbons. The app includes some nice features including a memory match game and a photo hunt game (aka spot the difference) where players must find 10 differences between two otherwise similar images that have been altered with photo manipulation. This app contains three photo hunt games. Available on the iTunes store.
SantaKid by James Patterson:
SantaKid is an exciting, new holiday app for 2012 based on the New York Times bestselling picture book from author James Patterson. When Warrie Ransom, the Big Boss of the Exmas Express Company, decides to buy Christmas and rename it Exmas, Santa Claus, Momma Claus, and their daughter Chrissie can’t believe their eyes. Everything at the North Pole seems to change overnight–the elves stop making kids’ favorite toys, the Christmas doves won’t fly or sing, and no one seems to laugh anymore. It looks like Christmas is going to be ruined.
But then Chrissie remembers something she had learned from her dad: you must believe in something bigger than yourself. With a little help from her dad’s helpers, Chrissie–as SantaKid–delivers presents to children on Christmas eve, sending Warrie Ransom back to where he came from! After all, when you believe in something, magic can happen. The digital version of SantaKid was just released by the Hachette Book Group and created by Auryn. Auryn added animation, a virtual Christmas tree, and a snowman mini game to the text and illustrations. Available on the iTunes store.
