Auryn, Inc., one of the most award-winning digital publishers and creator of unprecedented children storybook apps for iPad and tablet devices, is supporting children everywhere during the month of March by giving away one free storybook app each day to promote children’s literacy. Auryn has consistently produced great storybook apps that feature fantastic stories. Since my daughter and I began reviewing apps for Beijing Kids over two years ago, Auryn has always pushed innovation and creativity in this exciting area of storybook publishing, and I felt they had the best app of 2011/2012 with Van Gogh and the Sunflowers.
Each day in March, Auryn will unveil a free title on their website (blog.auryn.com), Facebook, and Twitter pages. Many notable and award-winning apps from the company’s popular collection will be offered free throughout the month, including the following award-winning titles:
· Where Do Balloons Go? (Winner of multiple awards including School Library Journal 10 Best Apps of the Year)
· Teddy’s Day (Winner of multiple awards including the first ever Appy Award)
· The Little Mermaid, Teddy’s Night, and Bunny Fun: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes (all Parent’s Choice Award winners)
“We are happy to support National Reading Month [in the USA]during March. By giving back with free storybook apps, we hope to inspire kids to read in a way that they will find fun and engaging,” said Umesh Shukla, Founder and CEO of Auryn, Inc. “Bringing illustrations to life through animation and interactivity seems to brighten the eyes and minds of today’s youngsters, and we couldn’t be happier to support that renewed enthusiasm.”
