What's New in Version 1.1
I corrected flow of book including fixing some minor issues with text, font and the placement of the image galleries and interactive galleries. I changed colors of all of the widgets and some of the text. I added text where the story needed to flow better. It was not a major revision, but because I have learned more since I originally started, I needed to correct this before I put out press releases. I also added in titles that are coming. I now have a look for the covers that will carry through my titles, so I changed the cover art text too.
Excellent Book, with great use of multimedia & interactives!
My whole family really enjoyed this book on sharks. The pictures were stunning with excellent video that helped to communicate sharks beauty and diversity. My 12 year old son could't put it down! Annie strikes a good balance between biology of sharks and the hazards that are currently driving many species of shark toward extinction. Most of the book highlights the diversity, biology and majesty of sharks. After showing the dangers to sharks, she also provides a page with easy to follow steps to help protect sharks and the oceans.
This is a great example of how an interactive book can be done well to reach a broad audience (both reading ability and ages). Excellent use of video an interactive elements where they can add to a standard book's impact. If anything it is a little light on the text elements, but it IS a beautiful visual exploration. We can't wait for the next Annie Crawley book on the ocean!
Not just for kids
This offering is so interactive and filled with interesting facts. Your kids are going to love the pictures and you will appreciate learning a lot more about sharks. Annie's passion for the ocean's inhabitants shines through the entire "book". I hesitate to call it a book because it's much more than that. It gives you opportunities to watch beautiful video, stills and read informative text. Beautiful use of the media.
Awesome book. Amazing photos and excellent use of interactivity on the pages. Very well done! Sharks are so important to our world and Annie "Ocean Annie" Crawley is a powerful, yet entertaining, force for sharks and all sea life.
