PBS Kids go Mobile!

A few years ago PBS did a study where they gave parents of preschoolers a cell phone loaded with applications to help the children learn to read. The study was successful. Now PBS has posted free mobile applications for parents to download on their iPods and cell phones. All of the favorite PBS characters can be loaded on the phone--Mister Rogers, Curious George and more! While most preschoolers do not have their own cell phone, they can use their parent's phones to learn literacy!
