[prMac.com] Santa Barbara, California - In recognition of National Autism Awareness Month, iStoryTime is pleased to announce that its Wee Sing & Learn ABC education app is now free to download for a limited time. Free on Apple devices, Wee Sing & Learn ABC is an entertaining and educational tool that combines original music, animated animals and musical instruments from A to Z, and read-along text to provide parents fun and creative ways to help their children learn the ABCs. The storybook is free through Sunday, April 29, 2012.
Wee Sing has sold over 60 million books, albums, and live-action videos over the past 30 years. A leader in preschool learning through music, Wee Sing is recognized as one of the world's most beloved children's brands.
Music educators Pam Beall and Susan Nipp, the creators of Wee Sing, understand that kids love to learn through music and repetition. "The interactive graphics, narration, and music in this app will enhance their language development, listening skills, and retention in such a fun way," said Nipp. Beall adds, "The Wee Sing & Learn ABC app effectively teaches letters and language through the use of music along with charming animation and genuine sounds to explore."
While children are learning letters and beginning reading, they are interacting with animals and instruments as well. The real sound of each animated animal is heard, the sounds having been gathered from animal recordings from around the world. And the real sound of each pictured instrument is heard, played on instruments that were collected from across the globe.
