Little Pim’s Talking Coloring Book app for the iPhone or iTouch is a great way to keep your children entertained while traveling or when you need a little “me time”. Not only does it entertain with it’s fun format, it also teaches a wide variety of languages such as French, Chinese, Spanish, Hebrew, Italian and Japanese.
We have both the DVD set as well as the flash cards in our home and I found this app to be a fun “virtual” extension of the flash cards. In a clear format which is easy on the eyes, a word is introduced. For example in the Italian version Little Pim holds a, “la mela” (apple) and the child can colour in the photo with just a tap of their finger. Once completed, they also have the option to email their masterpiece, in case you wish to keep their work or send it to Grandma and Grandpa.
My daughter had a lot of fun with this app and her 15-month-old sister is starting to get the hang of the “tap colouring” too! This program is a great way to familiarize children with different languages in a fun way.
