We’re thrilled to announce that the Make Way for Books App received an A+ rating for educational content from Common Sense Media, the nation’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of all kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in the 21st century.
According to Common Sense Media, “Parents looking for some support in creating meaningful interaction with their little ones will find lots of great resources here [on the Make Way for Books App]. Videos and short blurbs cover lots of ground in helping parents, like how to “read” to a small baby and how to create opportunities for “serve and return” interactions. Make Way for Books features really wonderful encouragement and modeling for parents.”
Activities on the Make Way for Books App teach families not only how to do an activity but also break down the latest research and evidence-based practices into “edible science” that shows families what their children are learning through each activity. Families learn how to support their children in experimenting with new materials, to ask open-ended questions, and to encourage their children to make predictions and observations. Take a look at one of our activities below!
The Make Way for Books App is available in English and Spanish and is free for families on Android and Apple. You can help us by downloading the Make Way for Books App, leaving a review on the app stores, and spreading the word about our app to more families! Click here to learn more.
