Keep kids engaged and educated with an augmented reality book from Zappar

With kids increasingly turning away from books and toward their tablets and smartphones, Zappar has provided a solution – marrying the two with its latest launch: The Boy With His Head Stuck In A Book. An augmented reality book for children aged 7-11, written by a primary English teacher who noticed that disengaged students were more inclined to pick up a book with a technological element, bridging literature and digital media.

The relatable protagonist is a school boy that hates reading – he gets his head literally stuck in a book when he is dragged to a library and flung into a fantastical world full of characters from classic novels to contemporary fiction. Referencing a multitude of various renowned books (listed below) provides a quick and easy way of inspiring students to explore these texts in more detail, with minimal nagging from parents and teachers.

Packed with educational features and curriculum links – this digital pop-up book will make learning fun outside of school.

•       The Hobbit – J.R.R. Tolkien

•       Alice in Wonderland – Lewis Carroll

•       Red Riding Hood – Brothers Grimm

•       The Wind in the Willows – Kenneth Grahame
