When you think back to your childhood and the books that you read, or were read to you, chances are some of those books were fables. The lessons we learn from fables are an important part of childhood. One fable not to miss is Perrette and the Pot of Milk, an adaption of Jean de La Fontaine’s Perrette et le Pot au Lait.
Perrette and the Pot of Milk is a simple, but beautiful story about a girl who dreams big. Though her dreams are delayed because of a mishap she does not become discouraged and give up.
This universal app does not contain a lot of bells and whistles to distract the reader, but does have enough to keep the reader’s attention. Two reading options are available; read to me or read it myself. Text is not highlighted as read; however, regardless of reading choice, the text can be read aloud. Some objects can be touched and the word appears as it is spoken.
One unique feature found in this book is the ability to switch between four languages with the buttons available on every page. Changing the language applies to the text of the story and to the interactive objects. You can have the story read to your child in English, switch to Spanish and have it reread to your child, all without exiting the page. Word association, text spoken and shown when the object is touched, is key in teaching children to read in any language, but can be especially helpful when learning multiple languages. The four languages available are English, Spanish, French and Arabic.
In addition to the language buttons, a home button is available on every page. Perrette and the Pot of Milk does not contain any outside links or social media buttons.
Perrette and the Pot of Milk is not only a beautiful multilingual fable, but can teach children basic words, in multiple languages, through word association.
