Books and Magazines



by Kristina Nedzvetskaya

Birdstown is a simple interactive book for kids who enjoy the birds and try to read. In this book 15 different birds are featured. Children need to make the name of a bird from the shuffled letters. Once the name of a bird is made right, the interactive content of the scene is enabled. Birds are drawn precisely, but the entertaining content is also available: each bird has its own clothes in the wardrobe and is placed at its own scene with different interactive parts.
