The Vanishing Coin Review

The Vanishing Coin iBook is indeed a communicative one and a user-friendly. The concept of the book is simply to capture the attention of the readers. Most of the kids nowadays are hooked with the innovative technology and reading an iBook such this is a great way to urge their interest on reading digitally.

The Vanishing Coin

My sons loved the interactive format of this book. They love to read, but also love "how to" on You Tube. This was a great combination for them to learn a new magic trick.
The older one is hoping you will do some how to on computer animation. Not all the Lego You Tube is appropriate and he thinks this would be a great format to learn in. He really liked the 3-D animation you used.

A step-by-step magic trick for kids

How fun! I just read this book with my 6 year old son, and we both really enjoyed it. The interactive elements complemented the "how to" content very well. In addition to reading about the trick's steps, it was also great to be able to watch them performed. My son is excited to practice the "vanishing coin" to see if he can wow his older sister.
