A Day in the Market

Reviewed on 3/6/15

This beautifully illustrated app from the Philippines tells the simple story of a mother and daughter trip to the market. It is filled with details authentic to the Philippines (the mother is called Nanay and they refer to their market bags as "bayong," for example) and the story can be listened to in both English and Filipino and the text can be either language as well (or mix and match).  Animations do not distract from the story, but instead move the story along nicely. There is one mini-game included in the middle of the story, but it’s fairly quick and easy to solve. At the end of the story, you can also play with a toy clay pot, throwing ingredients together to make authentic Filipino dishes. (Available for free on Google Play)
