Learn 7 languages with the classic fable: The Cicada and the Ant. Expose your kids to different sounds around the world while reading them bedtime stories!

Written for young readers, this app allows you to learn basic expressions in 7 languages through a fun and interesting bilingual fable. No grammar. No vocabulary list. This 10-minute script (English with foreign language expressions) takes you through an interactive dialog between 2 characters from your favorite fable.
