The Nativity Story App Review

The Nativity Story iPad/iPhone app is quite the hit in our house. Rebekah started playing with it and when Nathan saw it, he got right in on the action. Between the two of them, they figured out (without reading instructions) how to make the story go, make the characters speak and move different people/animals/objects all around. They are having a blast with the app and I'm happy to see them engaged in the Nativity Story. 

The app is available for iPad ($3.99) by searching the app store for: The Nativity Story - Popup DELUXE Edition
The iPhone app ($1.99) is available by sarching the app store for: The Nativity Story - Popup MINI Edition
Geared for ages 2-10, it's easy to use and boasts several languages. 

About The Nativity Story

Where will baby Jesus be born? At the market? At a restaurant? At the inn? Readers of this book app can follow Joseph and Mary on their search for a place to stay in Bethlehem. Along the way they encounter a variety of colourful local people and animals. This is a fun and engaging way to share the original story of Christmas with the young generation and remind them what Christmas is all about.
