A Magical Book of Numbers: Learn Chinese with Augmented Reality

✨ A new and engaging way to learn Chinese! ✨

A Magical Book of Numbers is a bilingual children's book that will captivate your young language learner as they learn to count in Chinese! The book comes with a companion augmented reality (AR) app that magically brings the book to life — a pairing that's a first of its kind in the world of language learning! This book is intended for Chinese language learners aged 2-6.

What's inside

This book includes colorful and vibrant illustrations created by a talented Taiwanese artist. A diversity of vocabulary and measure words are used to expose your child to the intricacies of the Chinese language. Each page is written in Traditional Chinese, Pinyin, Zhuyin, and English.

How it works

Using the companion Kebi Books iOS app, simply point your camera at any page in the book and watch it come to life in animation, while a native Chinese speaker reads the characters on the page. You'll hear Chinese pronunciation accompanied by magical AR effects, encouraging your young language learner to count along. Without needing to be a native speaker yourself, you'll be able to support your child's language learning journey!

Who created this

My name is Nathan, the creator of this book and software developer of the companion AR app. I'm Canadian-born living in the US and a father to my 2-year-old daughter, Callie. Our household is a mix of Mandarin Chinese and English, and we're always on the hunt for more engaging Chinese and bilingual resources — thus, this book idea was born!

Why this book

The main purpose of this book's creation was to engage my young daughter in her language-learning journey. Every decision made in creating this book, including the illustrations, animations, voiceovers, and technological features, were made with her in mind and with her acting as my main tester and critic! I think we landed on an incredible design and language-learning concept together, and we're excited to share it with other young Chinese learners out there!
