The Soft Parade

Christmas Parade by Sandra Boynton (Nook Kids Read to Me, $6.99; for children 1 to 2-years-old)

My family loves Sandra Boynton’s board books and I was excited to get this e-book and read it with my daughter.   Unfortunately, the Read to Me option on my Nook Kids app for my iPad reads each page but requires you to swipe and turn each page rather than read the whole book to you.   It would be nice to have that auto play mode as an option.  

My daughter gets excited to see the story unfold before her very eyes but between the slow, flat narration and the need to flip every page, I can tell this story will not hold her interest or entertain her.   I wish I could get my $6.99 back from Barnes and Noble to spend on a physical Boynton book instead.
