AASL Attendees Get First Look Inside Capstone's 4D Augmented Reading Books
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Nov. 9, 2017 – Capstone, a leading publisher of children’s books and digital products and services, is expanding its line of Capstone 4D augmented reading experiences with the addition of 46 new titles in spring 2018. Librarians attending the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) conference in Phoenix this week can see the publisher’s current series Curious Pearl, Science Girl 4D and Origami Crafting 4D in action, as well as get a sneak peek inside some of the forthcoming 4D titles in the publisher’s booth, #608.
Capstone 4D blends the benefits of print books with bonus digital content to enhance learning and appeal to the YouTube generation. Readers can download the free Capstone 4D app to their favorite device from the Apple App Store or Google Play, or access through www.Capstone4D.com with a password found inside a 4D book, and see videos that relate to that book.
“Capstone 4D is an exciting way to bring another dimension to the pages of a book, engaging kids with a 360-degree view of a topic. Readers get the best of both worlds – kids who prefer print get bonus video content, and kids who prefer digital technology are highly motivated to explore the pages within a book. We hope librarians who haven’t had a chance to see Capstone 4D in action will visit us at AASL and see firsthand how these books can engage their readers and create inspired learning experiences in their schools,” said Matt Keller, Capstone Chief Marketing Officer.
Capstone 4D spring releases are available for pre-order now on the publisher’s website. Books in the makerspace brand Dabble Lab will feature video content to help show how projects come together. New series will include: Epic Cardboard Adventures, Junior Makers 4D, Next Chapter Crafts 4D, Amazing Magic Tricks 4D, and Paper Airplanes with a Side of Science. Several series within the publisher’s Pebble Plus brand will also feature video content to help readers learn more on the topic, including Hands-On Science Fun, A Visit to…, Animal Offspring, Investigate the Seasons, and Understanding Differences.
