From the Developer
Discover the world of children’s ‘first’ experiences with Luca Lashes! This app is a multilingual, educational, interactive, audio short story. It begins the Luca Lashes series about children experiencing their ‘firsts.’ It is available in Chinese, English, French, Italian, and Spanish.
This first app in the series is short. It is intended to introduce the character Luca Lashes. The series follows the exploits of Luca Lashes, the Brown-eyed Boy with the Magic Eyelashes, as he discovers the world around him and experiences his ‘firsts’ in life. The app features interactivity (touch, sight and sound), suggestions for parents, and a relatable character. It is written for children under four. By using some of the real sounds associated with each ‘first,’ these experiences are brought to life through literature. Each story can be read in one of five languages, which also helps reinforce multilingualism! Read it in English, and then switch to Chinese!
To help young children learn to read, individual words are highlighted as the story is narrated. Luca Lashes promotes reading education by combining the original text with terrific artwork and audio. Each part provides entertainment and interactive learning opportunities. It’s never too early to fall in love with language!
