You and your child are learning a new language together, just by reading a fairy tale. Sometimes, you do the reading, sometimes you both take turns. You used to switch the voice reading on and let the program tell you the story but you don’t need it anymore because you’re learning fast.

Ratings and Reviews

For adults too


Great for adults who want to practice their Chinese!

Useful app


This is a very useful ESL tool. You can turn off the auto flip on the page and read in english to your student. They will understand the meaning because the Chinese is on the same page. Thanks Up24

Good for kids and beginners


Nice clear narration, simple to use, wish it had pinyin. Other than that I enjoy this app.
