There is a different book to read and image of Christmas on each day.

All of these fun and educational games are available at your favorite app store located on your tablet’s browser.

Be sure to monitor your child’s activity when using fun holiday apps, as many will solicit in-game upgrades to purchase – but are otherwise safe and family friendly.
