ABCD ANIMALS BOOK

A cute and cuddly superbook for newborns. Brought to you by web people.

The first of its kind, this book for your baby's ABCs uses only CSS3 to showcase adorable animals alongside the English alphabets. Help your baby stare at the animals only that bit longer. ;) No flashy gimmicks, no stupid gamification, no pesky downloads or interrupting upgrades.

Just a simple book. And, straight on the web.

Supported devices: Everywhere - iPads, iPhones, Android Phones & tablets, Kindle, Desktops, TVs. See details but guess what: Books are vest experienced on tablets!

THE BOOK

The book is live: ABCD ANIMALS BOOK

Slight framerate (FPS) quirks might occur due to the hacky use of CSS3 animations. Just for the fun of it.

HOW TO INSTALL IT ON THE iPAD FOR THE BABY

  • Open the book on Safari.
  • Tap the Share button at the top of the screen.
  • Tap Add to Home Screen

Done! The book will open like an app! Speak loudly as you make the alphabet bounce :-)

HACK IT IN YOUR OWN LANGUAGE

$ git clone https://github.com/marvindanig/ABCD-Animal-Book.git
$ npm install
$ bookiza server

Opens the book at localhost:4567.

The Project

This app was created using bookiza -- the "book baking" tool.
