The Manitowoc Public Library hosted the first live reading of Rocks In My Socks during their monthly Tuesday night reading club.
The book’s co-author, Pamela Dennison, captivated the young readers with the endearing story. They were all sitting on the floor asking questions and talking about the ‘rocks in their socks’.
When the story was finished, we brought out the iPad2 that was hooked up to an HD screen, and showed the kids all of the Augmented Reality games. It was so much fun to watch their sheer amazement as they were trying to figure out how the characters and games were magically appearing.
As an extra added treat, there were four iPad stations set up where the children could play and experience the Augmented Reality games first hand. While some were playing the AR games, others were at the coloring stations coloring their favorite DinosaurUs ExploreUs characters.
No child left empty handed as there were giveaways all night: Rocks In My Socks book, coloring books, and cuddly pink and white striped socks with one silly sized rock.
