Wee Alphas app wins shiny Parents' Choice Award
We're doing a happy dance over at Wee Society. The Wee Alphas iPad app won a prestigious Parents' Choice Silver Award, recognizing it among the very best mobile apps that entertain and teach, stimulate imagination and inspire creativity.
The app was selected by a panel of educators, kids, parents, scientists, performing artists and librarians. According to the organization, "We look for material to help parents and kids connect. We look for products that teach, without being preachy...In a landscape swelling with products marketed as 'educational,' the Parents' Choice Awards Committees help identify products our experts believe live up to the marketing claims. We don't recognize or commend those that don't."
The Parents' Choice Foundation is the nation's oldest nonprofit program created to recognize and recommend quality children's media and products. They also wrote a review of the Wee Alphas app: "Simple but irresistible stencil illustrations of twenty-six animals hold hidden letters in the Wee Alphas app...The final screen of the app reprises all of the animal characters in a giggle-worthy celebration of the app's special variety of silly humor."
You can download the app in the App Store.
