From Anne Beninghof – Ideas For Educators
Wow! The Augmented Reality features of this book knocked my socks off! I just finished reading/playing with it and had to review it right away. The embedded games include great animations, a variety of ways to interact and the 3D component is so engaging. I am so excited that this is the future for books - printed word with a great message, but interactive features to keep kids interested.
This is the coolest thing I've seen in a long time! Besides the fact that the game itself is a lot of fun, I absolutely love the idea of making books fun and interactive like this for kids. This has so much potential, it's exciting just to think about it. Can't wait to hear/see more.
FREE GAME: ROCK LAUNCHER
You and your wee-one will have a ‘blast’, literally, as you try to launch silly sized rocks into the pink and white socks!
To play the ROCK LAUNCHER game, you will need to download and install this App, then visit www.RocksInMySocksBooks.com/RockLauncher to DOWNLOAD AND PRINT the Augmented Reality Rock Launcher game image target. Once it is printed, point your compatible device’s camera at the image…and..GET READY FOR THE FUN TO BEGIN!
I simply cannot stop playing Rock Launcher! What a fun idea, and the story itself is very meaningful! I have tried of all the activities and would have to say Gracie dancing is my favorite! I would like to see some awards or achievements for Rock Launcher, and I will eagerly be awaiting updates!
