The Boy With His Head Stuck In A Book Zappa book review Family Clan

With kids increasingly turning away from books and toward their tablets and smartphones, Zappar has provided a solution – marrying the two with its latest book launch: The Boy With His Head Stuck In A Book.
The Boy With His Head Stuck In A Book is 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.

This 28 page paperback book, features interactive pages throughout bringing the story to life as you read, which makes it so much more appealing for children, especially for the children that aren’t to interested in books, this one will be sure to appeal them too!

This is a book to inspire a love of books!

“An ordinary boy is dragged to the library one mundane Saturday afternoon, much to his dismay; there are a million other things he’d rather be doing! Glumly traipsing up and down the aisles, he comes across an ancient, mysterious book with a mind of its own, and when his head becomes trapped within the pages, he is catapulted into a magical world filled with dinosaurs, dragons, pirates and ghosts…”

All you need to do to make this book come to life, it download the free Zappar App, and scan the pages as you go which will bring them to life. It is as simple as that!

I absolutely love the idea of a interactive book, making the story come to life!

I also like that as you tilt your device, the interactive image turns to be more 3D looking effect.

Our Thoughts

Jake and Graces’ favourite page out of the book is this one, they love how the little man at the bottom of the page clings on, and then comes through a little tear in the page and into the book. What a fun way to keep the book even more interesting! They have loved this book and have read it over and over again! What’s not to love? Your children’s’ imagination already comes to life when they read a book, this is a new way of bringing a book to life too!

As a mother of two, I read with my children all the time, I believe reading books to your children to be very important to their development, and also now Jake is older, he reads his stories from school to me and he is doing really well.

The Boy With His Head Stuck In A Book is a clever stocking filler: Interactive educational book for just £5.99 which is available on Amazon here.
