Heidi Advent calendar - English version

November 21, 2011

The Digital Media Diet

The whole original Heidi story to be told over 24 days ...

This app is a unique approach to the holiday season's advent calendar tradition. It features a portion of Heidi, the original classic by Johanna Spyri, unabridged and broken up into 24 days of read-aloud chapters to share with a child during December. There are settings in the app to lock/unlock the app so only the day's reading will open based on sync with your iPad's calendar. A lovely idea for a new family tradition and an excellent way to encourage children to enjoy a classic in a modern way. Not narrated. For a more in-depth review, see SmartAppsforKids.com.

This title is one of over two dozen titles briefly reviewed for a special post in our blog for the winter holidays, 2011.

All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.
