A Visit To Santa is a simple children’s app for iPad which is designed for the new reader in mind. Christmas-themed, it consists of simple sentences whose subjects can be tapped, with a picture then taking the place of the word in question. Mini-games are also included on many of these pages consisting of letter-based activities to aid in early literacy, such as decorating a Christmas tree with the letters which spell out “tree” or catching three words that rhyme with the word “fall” in a stocking that moves across the screen. Illustrations are included with each of these pages, and there is the ability to tap to hear a child narrate these sentences.

This app is simple in concept and execution, and although the use of child narration can sometimes be hard to understand, kids may appreciate the basic sentences, animations, and games that are included in this Christmas-themed app.
