Today The Guardian published its list of the best iPad apps for kids of 2014 – and we were absolutely THRILLED to see our Jack and the Beanstalk app take the number one spot! It’s an absolutely huge honour for the app, and honestly I feel a bit speechless.
Here’s what journalist Stuart Dredge had to say about Jack and the Beanstalk:
“British books and apps publisher Nosy Crow has made a succession of beautiful fairytale apps, all with a strong eye on encouraging reading, not just tapping on interactive whizziness. Jack and the Beanstalk was their best effort yet, blending storytelling and light gaming with the company’s now-familiar voice narration from children, not grown-ups.”
It’s been a pretty fantastic couple of months for Jack and the Beanstalk, which has also won the FutureBook Innovation Award for Best Children’s Fiction Digital Book, been shortlisted for a Digital Book Award, and been included on USA Today’s list of the top 10 kids apps of 2014.
