Albert Whitman & Company and Living Popups present the future of education with an augmented reality reading comprehension workbook experience.


The Boxcar Children characters literally jump from the pages of the book to enhance the story and encourage the reader. Fun simple scenes, thought provoking discussions about the content and simple, age appropriate multiple choice questions help the reader throughout the book.


To access the AR features, install the app to a smart phone and hold the phone over the images in the book. The characters will come to life from the pages of the book to escort the reader through the story.

For use in the dark, the flashlight icon will illuminate the page, while the camera icon lets users share snapshots with friends.

First Ever! 

This AR reading experience promotes a greater connection to the content and further fosters a love of reading. The app works with the original book one in the series, paperback or hardcover, printed after 1942.
