Twas the Night Before Christmas, web 2.0 style
It's the home stretch for us Christmas revelers, and if you're anything
like me, 'Twas the night before Christmas" is a holiday tradition.
And if you're like me, you still have a check list of "to do's" that rivals Santa's tonight.
That's why I'm so thankful that our friends at Readeez
are offering a free download of this classic Christmas story for our kids to enjoy again and again, even as I wrap up my holiday prep.
Featuring the friendly clear voices of the Readeez characters Julian and Isabel, creator Michael Rachap has taken the familiar Twas the Night Before Christmas rhyme and given it his Readeez treatment in A Visit From Saint Nicholas (Twas the Night Before Christmas)
If you aren't familiar with Readeez, it's such a cool way for kids to read along with the story because the words appear syllable-by-syllable on the screen, timed perfectly with the audio, so that kids can really follow the text.
I'm still going to snuggle in bed with my kids tonight and read them our traditional version. But I love that they can start enjoying it themselves while I'm in the other other trying to get the dog hair out of the tape on the gifts. -Christina
