2011 – The Year’s Best Digital Books for Kids – 31 Five-Star iPad Apps Not to be Missed | The Digital Media Diet

2011 – The Year’s Best Digital Books for Kids – 31 Five-Star iPad Apps Not to be Missed | The Digital Media Diet | Transmedia 4 Kids: Creating Content For Children | Scoop.it

At Digital-Storytime.com, we are celebrating our first birthday! We’d like to pay tribute to last year’s very best picture book apps for the iPad and the developers who made these reading experiences possible.

 

For the final post in our blog, I want to highlight the 31 books to receive a perfect 5-Star review on our site. With over 400 reviews, that means these apps are the cream of the crop, representing fewer than 10% of all the titles we’ve seen. We have awarded all of these developers our “Digital Storytime Star” for overall merit.

 

Since there are 31 days in January, we will be celebrating these wonderful books, one each day during the next month. Join us on our Facebook page for all the festivities to honor the 27 developers who’ve produced these fine apps for children.

 

This list is in order from oldest review to newest. The first few were reviewed in the very last days of 2010 but all were hits in 2011. And who knows what 2012 will bring?
