Today’s freebie choice is called Backyard at Twilight: A Stella and Sam Adventure. It is available in English and French.
Take a look:
It’s free today. To learn how I find out about these great freebies, check out this previous blog post.
I think the kids are really going to enjoy this app. It’s interactive and fun. It will definitely peak their interest about the stars and constellations.
The only wish I had for this app on first sight is French subtitles. I prefer my children to see the written word along with the dialogue. They aren’t quite literate yet, but I still like them to get used to seeing the words as they listen. My favorite type of subtitles (or writing on a “page” in a story app) highlight the proper word as it is being read aloud. I wish there were more apps with this feature! It’d probably be even better if you could turn that feature on/off according to the level of learner.
At any rate, this app looks like a good freebie catch! Enjoy! 🙂
