Harry Hörnchen is an illustrated interactive children’s book with the main focus on native animals located in Germany. The book is considered for children 3-7 years old. The user can choose between an automatic storytelling mode or reading the story in the traditional way.
Understanding how important it is nowadays to teach children from a young age media literacy, brought up the idea of creating an interactive children’s book. The goal was to create a book that combines the best of modern media with traditional books and the ritual of snuggling up with your parents in bed to read a book.
This project took part during my studies and I had the opportunity to work with two other great students. Each of us is passionate about another subject, which made it really interesting. One member of our group enjoys working with video and audio whereas the rest of us enjoys storytelling, character design, and illustration in general. We have been working on this project for approximately 1.5 years together, which makes this project the most time consuming one I worked on during my studies.
