Fun with languages
Absolutely marvelous...my mother use to sing this song to me and my sisters in Spanish and I have been singing it to my 5 month old, but when I went to look for more books in Spanish I was happy to find this book with both Spanish and English and I was even more surprised To discover the contents of this app...I’m in love!!!! Hearing all the songs in different languages I only wish there was Vietnamese version as my husband is Vietnamese and he wishes he could chime in to sing this song to our son, you See I’m Puerto Rican and Mexican American and my husband is Vietnamese and we want to make sure our son learns all three languages and for that we have to start when he is small, and so I have been looking for something like this but with Vietnamese in the mix as well, I have been lucky to find English and Spanish mostly. I hope to see more of this book and app combo in the future. Thank you for making languages fun 💖
I was so excited to have discovered this app. I babysit occasionally and I have a little one of my own and this app keeps the kids entertained. I love the various activities the children can do. I’m so happy that there is content for bilingual babies so I can pass a little of my culture to them!
I gave this app to both my kids since I grew up listening to Los Pollitos, they both engaged immediately and it was great to see how my older son would show my younger daughter how to interact with the app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
