A series of photos accompanied by text (nicely read by a child narrator and sprinkled with words from the local language) explore a day in the life of a child from one of five different countries. After your child hears about a day in the life of one of the featured kids, they are asked questions about their life (in the same featured child's voice) and can record their answers. A great way to learn about similarities and differences between your child's everyday routines and those of someone across the globe. The app also includes mini-lessons in the different featured languages and facts about the countries. (full disclosure: the app's creator is a friend of mine from college days, but I loved this app even before I knew she was the one who made it!)
