The Book

Printed on high quality A5 paper

Columbii has been written by us from the ground up, or from the sky down from Columbii's perspective. The book takes the reader on a guided tour around many different countries, including key landmarks and facts! The entirety of the book rhymes, which allows youngsters to improve on their English language skills as they read the book. We have designed the book so that it is able to be used with and without the app. This allows for the thrilling experience of using the interactive element while also meaning that the book can still be used for that quiet, relaxing bedtime read.
