Jill’s Comment:

QLL Kung Fu Chinese has released several bilingual story apps for people learning Chinese and English in a fun way! The Milkmaid and Her Pail app has some good points which are the same features of their other story apps:

  1. There are bilingual subtitles and asides. The audio recorded by professional native speakers.
  2. Parents can save their spit thanks to the “Read for you” function.
  3. The pictures are adorable. Aesop’s fable is vitalized in modern elements. That’s cute.
  4. The story implies morals. They are meaningful.

Beside, The Milkmaid and Her Pail app has added a new game—finding treasure. For those reasons above, this app seems so suitable for bilingual kids and toddlers, because the story app can not only train their reading and listening skills, but also tell them some morals, helping them learn well and keep a good behavior. I really like the finding treasure game. The buttons to start the game are hidden in different pages. After you enter the game, you have to find the things in order on the list. Finding it out in a limited time is interesting and exciting. This game is also a test. It tests you on the meaning of the vocabulary both in English and Chinese. In my opinion, for parents who want to teach children Chinese with storytelling, this is a good choice.
