Great tool for your young learners.  Excerpt:

After a year-long development phase, American Greetings Entertainment and Bilingual Children’s Enterprises (BCE) have launched an interactive bilingual app called Care Bears & Amigos in NYC. 

Developed by BCE, the iOS and Android app teaches preschoolers Spanish and English through videos, 30-plus game and storybooks. It features more than 1,000 words in English and Spanish, as well as early STEM topics and social and emotional learning. The app also allows kids to toggle between Spanish and English content.

BCE is also the creator of Tipitom, a suite of educational apps that aim to close the achievement gap specifically for English-language learners.
