Our Rating

Merry Christmas Mom and Dad - Little Critter Little Critter by Mercer Meyer  has been a perennial favorite with pre-school and Kindergarten aged children for almost 40 years. He does a great job of guiding young children through the kinds of situations they may find themselves in. He may not get everything right, but he always tries to do the right thing.

In Merry Christmas Mom and Dad by Oceanhouse Media, Little Critter attempts to  make Christmas special for his Mom and Dad. He tries different things such as making cookies, picking out a Christmas tree, and wrapping presents, but each time the results are not quite what he was hoping for. Even though Little Critter messes up at everything he tries, you can’t help but fall in love with him. He is charming  and funny as he explains what he did and what happened when he did it. My kids and I really enjoyed this story.

This app comes with all of Oceanhouse Media’s fabulous features. It has three  reading options (read to me, read by myself, and auto play), words are highlighted as they are read, pictures and words are interactive and are highlighted and read  when tapped, and custom voice narration may be recorded by multiple readers
which can be shared with friends and family via email. A newer feature in  Oceanhouse Media apps is the age gate where children are prevented from accessing external links. This is achieved by requiring a two finger swipe in a  specific direction. The direction changes each time and can be either to the left, right, up, or down.

A fun activity is included in this app: hidden in every page of the book are a  grasshopper and a spider, can you find them all? Often they are easy to find, other times you have to look really closely to find them. My kids had a blast looking for the grasshopper and the  spider, and I love it because it helps them develop good observation skills.
Merry Christmas Mom and Dad and is a light, endearing story that is sure to bring  out the giggles. It is best suited for preschoolers, but is sure to be loved by everyone.
