[prMac.com] Manhattan, New York - iMagine Machine(TM) has announced Faces iMake - ABC 1.0, preschool app for iOS. From the makers of the award-winning App, Faces iMake Right-Brain-Creativity comes a charming and imaginative way to explore and play with the alphabet. Part game, part puzzle, it's interactive, entertaining and offers the most fun with the alphabet since Sesame Street.
"Faces iMake ABC employs simplicity, intuitiveness, vibrant colors, a nurturing voice, soothing music, and delightful animation - all to support the young child in having fun while learning," says Susan McWilliams, Ph.D. Associate Professor, Early Childhood Education, University of Nebraska at Omaha - Omaha Family Literacy Partnership.
"Faces iMake is a fabulous app to have students continue practicing letters and their sounds! It is appropriate for preschool, Kindergarten and even some First Grade students. It will also aid English Language Learners in learning the sounds of the letters," says Ms. Alyssa Gentile, First Grade Teacher, Brunswick Acres Elementary School.
Faces iMake ABC is a space where kids can learn their ABC's while playing and making stuff - two activities young children enjoy. The game features 26 new wonderful collage creations by world-renowned artist Hanoch Piven (the creative force behind the Faces iMake App series), which come apart and are then reassembled by the playing child. Piven also provides a charming play-along soundtrack which will amuse and delight all ages.
Hanoch Piven says, "Children can see every day objects in a new light, transforming them and using their forms to create new images. Through this process children can become aware of visual metaphors and help them to look at everyday object in a new way."
