[prMac.com] Seattle, Washington - Reading Raven, a fun and engaging multi-sensory learn-to-read game for iPad, is flying up the charts in the Apple App Store after being named an Apple "Staff Favorite" in the Education category. Reading Raven, produced by Early Ascent, LLC, has earned rave reviews from parents, educators and independent reviewers since its initial release two months ago. The app combines a strong educational focus with a winning combination of learning activities, skills-building, graphics, sound effects and music that helps young readers grow and learn.
Reading Raven takes an innovative and comprehensive approach to teaching children to read, layering a variety of foundational pre-reading skills, such as letter and word recognition, spelling, writing, reading and rhyming, into a playful game that flows naturally from one activity to the next. This combination of features also earned Reading Raven a place among "8 Not-to-Miss Apps for Early Learning" recently published on the Circle of Moms website and curated by Carolina Nugent, Director of Education for the educational app store, Kindertown.
"We are thrilled that Reading Raven has become the #1 best-selling learn-to-read iPad app on the market, and we are very thankful to all the parents, teachers, friends and team members who have made this possible," said Scott White, founder of Early Ascent. "But more importantly, we are excited about the impact we're having in helping young kids learn to read."
Recognizing the value of including learning apps in mobile learning kits at schools, educators and administrators are starting to evaluate and use Reading Raven for Kindergarten, 1st grade and special ed classes. Educators are welcome to request a promotional code for the app by contacting Early Ascent directly.
