As we watch the year come to a close, we’ve been blessed to see several of our apps make some of the year’s BEST OF LIsts, including:
Kirkus Reviews chose Spot the Dot , produced with our friend, the great pop-up artist, David A. Carter, as one of the Best Kid’s Apps List of 2011 calling him the Picasso of paper engineers (One Red Dot, 2005, etc.) displays a dab hand at concocting even more thoroughly interactive explorations of shape and color for touchscreens.
We love that School Library Journal selected our very own Spot the Dot as a top 10 kid’s app of 2011. They say that it “embodies the medium’s potential to create entertaining educational materials for all children, including those with special needs.”
Broxterman’s Bugle: Teaching with Technology included Chuck & Friends in a list of the best apps to use in classrooms, calling it a book app with the characters every little boy loves, embedded to reinforce letters, fine motor, and story comprehension.
Digital Storytime also chose A Present for Milo as one of the best digital books for kids, calling it one of the best books I’ve come across for children under age 6. The words in the book are very simple and the illustrations tell the story as much as the text.
Lil Sugar included Andrew Answers on its best of 2011 Kids Apps List, calling it a a fun, interactive app, Andrew Answers ($4) takes lil ones along on an adventure all the way to the Oval Office when Andrew is smug with his teacher. With mazes and games scattered throughout the tale, tots won’t be bored too soon.
We are so grateful for everyone’s support this year and hope that you all have a wonderful time bringing in 2012. See you next year!
