Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) November 1, 2010
Tales2Go LLC, the popular children’s audio story mobile app, today announced that it has been selected as a 2010 National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) Gold winner. For two decades, NAPPA's high standards in evaluating children's toys, music, books, video games, DVDs and more have made it one of the most prestigious awards in children's learning and entertainment. Tales2Go was named a Gold Award winner in the Storytelling/Spoken Word category, which recognizes excellence in products geared towards storytelling, spoken-word recordings and audio books for children.
“This year’s NAPPA winners expose children to new worlds of creativity and exploration,” said Barbara Smith Decker, NAPPA manager. “Our lead storytelling judge and family testers saluted Tales2Go not only with a NAPPA Gold award, but also with ‘Best Bang for the Buck’ and ‘Family Fun’ citations. The site offers families a vast selection of great storytellers and recordings, while making stories portable and accessible for a very reasonable annual fee.”
“Tales2Go is honored to be recognized by NAPPA as a Gold Award winner,” said William Weil, Co-Founder and CEO of Tales2Go. “This recognition helps to substantiate our mission to spark kids’ imaginations and utilize cutting edge technology to bring back the simple pleasures and rewards of storytelling to everyday life, by making audio stories easily accessible, on-the-go and affordably priced.”
Tales2Go is a first-of-its kind subscription kids’ story app that gives parents and caregivers instant, on-demand and unlimited access to over 1,300 stories from leading audio publishers (such as Scholastic and Recorded Books) and award-winning storytellers (such as Bill Harley, Donald Davis and Heather Forest). Stories range from fairytales to classics (such as Curious George Rides a Bike) to popular series and characters (such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid).
Tales2Go is available in the Apple App Store in the Education category (North America).
Now celebrating its 20th year, the National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) is the “go-to” source for parents and professionals seeking the best Children’s Products (toys, games, books, music, DVDs, software and videogames, websites, storytelling recordings and audio books) and Parenting Resources (books, DVDs, maternity and baby gear, accessories and more).
A NAPPA award is far more than a seal of approval. It signifies that the winning product has been rigorously evaluated against stringent criteria and that it stands out among hundreds of other products from around the world, selected in a juried competition.
NAPPA’s team of independent expert judges and parent/child testers select the most entertaining, appealing, safe, educational, age-appropriate and enduring products as NAPPA Gold and Honors winners in two annual competitions: NAPPA Children’s Products and NAPPA Parenting Resources competitions. NAPPA is a division of Dominion Parenting Media Inc., which owns and operates eight award-winning regional parenting magazines and Parenthood.com, a leading online resource and community for parents and professionals working with children.

Tales2Go features the best in kids’ audio stories, from trusted audio publishers and dozens of award-winning storytellers. Great for kids 3-11 (and the whole family), the Tales2Go library includes classics, folktales, fairytales, myths, and kids’ favorite book series and characters.
