Carla commented on My first book - Learning and playing

Thank you for your comment, Juliana. We hope this idea goes ahead too, we have not contacted any company to help us with finances, but the plan is working with educators to improve the didactics of the project; non-governmental institutions to test and distribute it and companies to print it, sell it and provide the free ones to distribute.

Thank you again for your contribution!

Thank you Yee Ting Chan, your comment made me think about what else the shapes can teach them, the textures idea is lovely. Showing them different materials and textures can make it more interesting for them and consequently improve their interaction with the product.
We will need to think about the practical application and the cost of it, but it is something to be considered.

Thank you so much!

Thank you, Ayman! We hope this interaction affects positively children and parents as you said, leading them to learn to read and write and improving their relationship too. (:
