Language learning is a crucial element in children’s life. As the millennial generation, children nowadays cannot be separated from technology. Therefore, this study was aimed to develop a digital storybook to enhance children’s language learning by applying Mayer’s principles. This is a collaborative study between researchers from Indonesia and Malaysia. Seventeen children from both countries whose ages ranged from five to seven years old were recruited as the participants. Two experts in children pedagogy were also involved in this study to give feedback from the developed digital storybook. The participants were included in a series of User Experience (UX) Workshops. After the digital storybook has been developed, feedbacks from experts and users were gathered. It was found that this application can improve children language learning. They found new vocabularies and sentences. This digital storybook also introduces them to terms in nature since the stories are about environment. This application can be used by the children but with more interaction with parents and teachers to build more communication.
