[prMac.com] New York, New York - Announcing that Mochiviva, the developers of A Giant Radish, has launched a unique new product for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. Kids and adults alike can enjoy this beautifully illustrated children's story, which can be read and listened to in six languages. Voices are provided by professional actors in their native languages. An interactive application, A Giant Radish allows users to drag images or text to move the story along, similar to a film effect and is simple enough for two year olds to use by themselves.
A Giant Radish is a newly launched application that appeals to youngsters and their parents. It's a beautifully illustrated story that can be heard, as well as read.
The app is a children's tale about an old man with a beautiful garden. Users are able to read the text at the bottom of each page with or without accompanying voice reading in any of six different languages. The selection of languages includes English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Romanian and Italian. Users are also treated to the beautiful strains of a peaceful countryside throughout the story.
All of the voices in A Giant Radish are spoken by professional actors in their native tongue, for authenticity and prime learning of a foreign language. Face icons that appear on the pages have been designed to look like the real story readers, to further add an authentic feel.
Some of the features in A Giant Radish include:
* Beautifully illustrated story
* Interactive, super easy to use
* Very child-friendly, no info or settings buttons
* Will read aloud in any of six languages

There is no info button, nor are there settings. A youngster merely drags an image or the text and the story progresses smoothly to the next frame, much like a roll of film. Voice reading can be paused to allow a child to practice his or her own reading skills.
