Our animated picture books and the digital literacy-games we designed to complement them, have won the prestigious Dutch National Literacy Award.
State Secretary of Education M. van Bijsterveldt handed out the award. The award was awarded by the The Reading & Writing Foundation which is chaired by Her Royal Highness Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands.
The jury praised the innovative and effective approach towards solving literacy problems in early education.
Shortly after the release of iPad, Apple selected the app Letterlegger to be one of the best five Dutch educational apps of 2011. We created the app for educational publisher Zwijsen.
After that we went on to create many more apps. Many of those ended up in the top 10 of their category in the App Store.
Users of the app where also very happy with it:
What a great app for 4-5 years old kids who already know some letters. My grand daughter loves it!Ashat4youGreat! *****
