A HAPPY SCHOOL DAY
Follow the lives of two kids from TAIWAN, and PHILADELPHIA for a school day.
From the time each child gets ready for school until the time they head back home,
the details of their days can differ.
How will their days be different?
In Taiwan, they have a raising flag ceremony before the class. In Philadelphia, pork roll can be a classic breakfast. How they do at school may vary, but the parallel rhythm of their days — and this one world we all share — unites them. This genuine exchange provides a window into the lives and traditions that may differ from our own, but these common experiences also unite us. Inspired by my own study abroad, I transport readers across two continents, Taiwan to Philadelphia and back, with this thoughtful and playful Augmented Reality(AR) picture book. Enjoy!
The book is divided up into two parts. The left side is for an eastern audience to understand the western culture. The right side is the opposite.
