App of the Month
Peter Rabbit in Chinese and English

https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/peter-rabbit-bilingual-chinese/id380437537?mt=8
I think this is really cute. This bilingual Chinese/English version of Peter Rabbit with original images. You can hear it in both languages and easily switch between them. - Switch between the Chinese and English versions of each page by clicking the / button. Tap on a paragraph of Chinese text to see its pinyin. Available for ipad.
