For those emerging readers, Picture Me Christmas Cutie  at first glance it may appear childish as the main characters are babies with their cooing and giggling sounds, however, it is so much more than those adorable sounds that a baby makes.  In the palm of their hands it becomes an interactive leveled book.  As the story is wonderfully narrated, pre-literacy skills are incorporated as words are highlighted which guides them from beginning to end.  To become a successful reader, emerging readers begin with leveled or staged books, similar to Picture Me Christmas Cutie as it incorporates repetition and may require a picture to text connection.  While listening to the narrator, young readers will be able to interact with objects in such ways as: dragging and eating a cookie or licking a lollipop, and make connections with those toys that are in Santa’s Workshop.

Read Picture Me Christmas Cutie with the help of the narrator or turn the sound off and read it yourself.  Regardless of how it may appear, it is an interactive book for  non-readers and new ones too!  My little cutie wanted to experience this book in a variety of ways and over and over again.  The pleasure that he got out of reading and seeing himself as part of a book was worth the download.  If you would like to learn more about Oceanhouse Media and the other applications that they have to offer, please visit their website here.  To begin making your own interactive Christmas cutie, click here to add to your iTunes library today.
