’Mark’s shapeAbet’ is a candyBox interactive book. It’s a wonderful way to explore the world of letters, digits & how to make them using shapes. ‘shapeAbet’ is our ‘candyBox Shape Alphabet’, registered internationally.

Once upon a time there were four children: a pinkish Princess Athina, the ever-energetic, cute twins Ana-Diana & Zou-Zou Zoi, together with their ’big brother’ Mark. As the ‘candyBox crew’, they explore our BIG WORLD from their small height, looking around & asking questions, .…

This book is by Mark, who was playing with the basic geometric shapes like rectangles, triangles, circles & squares, moving them around to create something special. And suddenly he found that he can build letters & digits! Mark developed a whole new alphabet design and called it ‘shapeAbet’.

’Mark’s shapeAbet’ helps to build associations between the geometric shapes & alphabet characters, shapes & digits. It has a book format with an innovative navigation; it spells letters & numbers & breaks down their structure into the geometric shape elements. There’s interactive content on every page with sound and animation; colourful, clean & simple, without distractions. It’s designed for children aged 4-8, but even adults may find something new, especially learning latin-based languages.

And it is multilingual! candyBox helps learn letters in a mother tongue, or second language. European, Asian and Cyrillic languages are supported. And there’s the candyBox crew: real-life voices of Athina, Ana, Zoi & Mark!

Just for fun you can also choose the navigation sounds - marimba, organ, alien piano, etc.
