Luca Lashes Announces New Contest

LucasLashesThe creators of Luca Lashes multilingual e-book and app series have announced a “Raising Multilingual Children in a One-language Household” contest. Parents who offer tips for fostering second-language development in their children will have a chance to win a Luca Lashes iTunes app library of titles in one language (Spanish, French, Italian, or Chinese) of their choosing.

Because raising multilingual children in a household where the parents speak only one language is not an easy task, Luca Lashes e-books and apps help parents foster language development through educational experiences with these tools.

Luca Lashes Adds Activities for Kids to Its Website

ed5c33850e2afd26b1ae379354ac307dCreators of Luca Lashes LLC’s multilingual e-book and app series are offering an Activities for Kids section on its website to provide free non-technology activities to entertain young children. The activities, like the e-books and apps, are based on a young boy named Luca whose magical eyelashes help make him brave. The series helps turn fearful firsts into educational experiences, whether it is a child’s first haircut, first dentist visit, first swimming lesson, and more.

The activities include a connect the dots game where children can work on shape recognition, color sheets, mazes, a find the difference game, Find It! game, review questions from the books, cut and paste activities for easy arts and crafts, and Silly Things.

Through these activities, kids can learn shape recognition, problem solving, details, reading comprehension, and logic skills.

All of the activities can be downloaded in PDF or JPG formats and printed for free. Interested readers can familiarize themselves with the Luca Lashes series for free by downloading the first app in the series, Luca Lashes, the Brown-Eyed Boy with the Magic Eyelashes on iTunes, Google play, the Amazon App Store, or Nook.
