AR Books are actual paper or digital copies of traditional books. They have both text and illustrations. They are linked to the additional content . The camera is pointed at a page in the book. Then the application ‘reads’ the page and displays that content on the screen of the device. This content could be a picture or video file or an audio clip or a whole animated sequence. It could even be a game or activity associated with the traditional media. Now, we will introduce you two very popular children books using AR technology.

As usual, each book appears to be a normal coloring book, with images of fairies, dragons, and popular cultural icons to color. However, once the coloring is complete, children can use the application to generate a 3D model of their drawing, shaded in every way, which they can then interact with and move around on the screen
