Do you have a favorite Nursery Rhyme----Humpty Dumpty, Itsy Bitsy Spider, the team behind EZ-Tales.com is inviting all kids between the ages of 5 and 12 to submit an original Nursery Rhyme for a free writing contest. Elementary school classrooms and library reading groups are also eligible.
There will be four Grand Prize winners, whose stories will be produced as professional animated interactive books. Each Grand Prize winners will receive the nabi 2TM children’s tablet. It doesn’t stop here! Every child is a winner because every story submitted will be published for all to enjoy.
EZTales.com brings over 1,000 children's story books and songs to life with colorful illustrations, animation, music, voice over, sound effects and word highlighting----all to help young children become "ready readers."
"In many cases nursery rhymes are a child's first introduction to the written and spoken word," says Richard Eaves, Co-founder of EZTales.com. So, we thought why not challenge them to use their imagination and write their very own Nursery Rhymes that we'll publish in book form on our website. In the past, we've had some very clever stories written by kids which we've produced as animated books."
We're also encouraging all contestants to illustrate their Nursery Rhymes. When you can get kids excited about a contest like this it does wonders for their self-esteem and they become more confident readers, adds Co-founder Cliff Dew. "There is academic evidence that nursery rhymes enhance a child's phonological skills, which in turn helps them learn to read. And since day one, our subscribers have gravitated to our most popular category of animated books - Nursery Rhymes, including Mother Goose, Beatrix Potter, Peter Patter, Aesop Fables and our serialized interactive Nursery Rhymes."
Register today! Don’t let your child miss the opportunity----a free, fun, and educational story writing contest.
