Ripple Digital Publishing started its annual Kids Write 4 Kids creative challenge to encourage kids to read and write. Our sense of self, creativity and ambition grow from the support we had during our youth. By providing youth with opportunities to share their stories, we hope to help build a generation of adults that love to read and write.
The year, we are proud to be adding two more titles to our Kids Write 4 Kids collection: Mika’s Fortune by Faith Emiry and Escape from the Taco Shop by Christopher Smolej
Selected as Best iPhone & iPod Apps for Kids for March 2013 – “Count, Sort and Match is an amazing app for children up to 6 years old that does just what it says. Through simple and intuitive games, children will learn how to count, how to correctly write the numbers, how to sort objects of different colors and to train their memory skills by matching cards.”
Reviewed by Geeks with Junior “Count, Sort, and Match is an excellent math-themed activity app for juniors ages three to five. The games are well implemented and the app is beautifully illustrated. I would recommend it just for the memory matching game alone, but overall the app is quite solid.” – Geeks with Junior

Develop foundational math skills with the fun, interactive Count, Sort and Match – perfect for preschoolers to age six. Your child will learn to:
Count – Apples magically appear on the apple tree as your child counts to 20 with audio confirmation along the way. Build associative understanding and fine motor skills tracing numbers alphabetically and numerically in the puffy white clouds above the apple tree. Choose to count in sequence or in random order.
Sort – Group laundry hanging on the clothesline into baskets first by shape, then colour and later size. Typical sorting games are limited to shapes but by providing additional grouping options children reinforce their understanding of this foundational mathematical skill.
Match – Numbers from 1 to 12 are shown numerically and pictorially on flash cards. As children match each number with its picture the cards flip to reveal a puzzle piece. Once all the cards have been successfully matched the completed puzzle picture is displayed.
Build your child’s mathematical skills and understanding with Count, Sort and Match – an educational, comprehensive and interactive program available at Apple iTunes and Google Play store.
5-star review from SmartKidsApps.org – “The app is not cluttered. The graphics are great. The music and sound effects are not grading. And the words and letters are beautifully pronounced by a human voice.” – App of the Month for April, 2013
