[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - Parents of young children who want to turn bedtime from a difficult task into a wonderful experience - or who want to make "quiet time" something that children look forward to, instead of try their best to avoid - can now head to the App Store or Google Play and download the phenomenal new no-cost app Top 10 Classic Children's Stories from Foundry Works Pty Ltd.
Designed for iPad and Android-enabled tablets, Top 10 Classic Children's Stories contains 10 timeless fairy tales that have been vetted by a qualified child educator to be imaginative and entertaining, while they help lay the foundation for a child's developing vocabulary: Red Riding Hood; Cinderella; Hansel and Gretel; Goldilocks and the Three Bears; The Three Little Pigs; Jack and the Beanstalk; Beauty and the Beast; Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs; Sleeping Beauty; and The Ugly Duckling.
Parents have the choice of reading each delightful story to their child, or they can activate the app's brilliant "Read to Me" function and listen to Ken Spillman, the celebrated Australian author who has written more than 35 books, bring each tale to life through a lively, colorful re-telling full of magic, wonder and whimsy. Plus, both parents and children alike will fall in love with the brilliant illustrations that accompany each story, which have been meticulously crafted by the renowned children's book illustrator Beth Parrocha.
Other Top 10 Classic Children's Stories special features include:
* The option to bookmark a page and return to it at anytime - which is especially handy since many children happily drift off into dreamland well before the stories reach their happy conclusions
* An "about this story" button to learn more about each specific story
* Simple and easy volume control when the above-noted "Read to Me" function has been activated
* A page counter to easily navigate through each story and know at-a-glance how many pages have been read/lay ahead
"Parents know that there are two times in a young child's day that can either be good and enjoyable, or bad and difficult: bedtime and quiet time," commented Mark Thomas Foundry Works Pty Ltd. "Fortunately, we created Top 10 Classic Children's Stories to help parents and their children assure themselves of the former; and avoid the latter. From the library of 10 classic world famous fairy tales that entertain as well as educate, to Ken Spillman's outstanding story writing, to Beth Parrocha's remarkable hand-painted illustrations, we've spared no details to make the app something that both parents and children will enjoy and treasure. And best of all, there's no-cost to download, which is another aspect that we're sure parents will appreciate!"
