"We are honored to be among the inaugural group of Parents’ Choice Award-winning mobile apps, which reflects the importance of connected mobile devices in parents’ and kids’ lives."
Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 22, 2010
Tales2Go, a first-of-its-kind audio story app for kids, was awarded the prestigious 2010 Parents’ Choice Silver Honor Award as a top mobile application for kids and parents.
Parents’ Choice has been reviewing and recommending quality children’s media for more than 32 years. According to Parents’ Choice Foundation, “Not only is it clear that children must be adept in the traditional areas of learning, they must also be competent and skilled in the learning opportunities digital media provides.” Tales2Go received a Parents’ Choice Silver Honor Award for their on-demand, mobile audio story service, available in the Apple App Store.
Parents' Choice Foundation's panels of educators, scientists, performing artists, librarians, parents and, yes, kids themselves, identify the very best products for children of different ages and backgrounds, and of varied skill and interest levels. The Parents’ Choice Awards program has established the benchmarks of achievement in children’s media. Approximately 20% of those items submitted to the Parents’ Choice Awards™ program receive a commendation in one of the six award levels: Classic, Gold, Silver, Recommended, Approved, and Fun Stuff, underscoring the influential and celebrated achievement of being honored with a commendation from the Parents’ Choice Awards program.
“We are very pleased to be recognized by Parents’ Choice as being an innovative and trusted platform for audio stories from leading publishers and storytellers,” said William Weil, Co-Founder and CEO of Tales2Go. “Listening to audio stories on a cutting edge mobile device like an iPhone is both exciting and entertaining for kids, as well as something parents can feel really good about, since audio stories are an alternative to screen time, expose kids to new vocabulary and foster a love of literature. We are honored to be among the inaugural group of Parents’ Choice Award-winning mobile apps, which reflects the importance of connected mobile devices in parents’ and kids’ lives.”
“Stories, written and told, have long been the bedrock of learning about worlds both real and imagined. Tales2Go transports the age-old pastime of learning through listening directly to the 21st Century,” said Claire Green, president of Parents’ Choice Foundation.
