Nice app for introducing the holiday

The dragon dance was my favourite part. Would definitely use this app to introduce Chinese New Year to a preschool classroom.

Great app for kids

My boys--2 and 4--both love this app. They were asking to use it again this evening. I find they're repeating the Chinese words, and the creators have done a great job of mixing some language learning with a fun story and some surprise. Definitely recommended.

Love this storybook app. The kids have fun and actually learn something. I already have MiaoMiao and DouDou portraits all over my fridge!
