Adults and children of all ages can learn another language by listening to Seth either sing or read the amusing story of a little hummingbird and a big hero and watch the words be highlighted.
“What began as a true story became a song and then a children’s book, and now an interactive adventure story book,” According to Seth Hoffman. “As a school teach who has worked for many years in a bilingual setting, I can tell you that kids soak up new languages in a way that adults cannot. I have observed people learn especially well when language is integrated with music.”
Features which make Janie stand out among children’s books are:
* Words highlight as they are read or sung
* Single tap on text to swap languages
* Double tap illustration to zoom in
* Hidden vocabulary images
* Entire book can be read aloud to child without interaction
With all the loud, noisy, violent, addictive games for kids, Janie and the Hummingbird is a welcome calming and relaxing experience. Research has proven that children exposed to multiple languages perform much better with critical thinking and other academic areas.
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 9.3 or later
* 153.2 MB
