Mademoiselle Daisy’s New Friends
An animated story about trying to fit in
As children’s storybook apps go, Mademoiselle Daisy is very memorable, with professional narrations in English and French alongside the impressively crisp animation.
The app tells the story of Mademoiselle Daisy, who is searching for new friends in a new town. Much like traditional children’s storybooks, the app is very image driven, with small text boxes on each page that can be swiped away.
The app also comes with two mini games: a nine-piece puzzle as well as a memory card game. There is a strong learning experience available in this app – the French version is ideal for children who have just started a new language. They have the option of following the text along with the narrator, letting them see as well as hear.
The only minor disappointment with the app is the lack of interactivity within the animations. This isn’t something your youngsters will dwell on though, as the artful animation and sweet nature of the story will keep them occupied, as will the additional mini-games.
An enjoyable children’s book app that is maybe missing one or two features that prevent it from full marks.
