Concept

The DotnDot that made from recycled material makes it possible for children to read a fairytale using 3 more senses than usual, in addition to sight.
Children who range in age from three to seven cannot concentrate on only one thing because their attention span is very short. The printed book is limited because it only requires the sense of sight, but of course reading is very important for children because it gives them lessons in creative thinking and also materials for learning a language. If you want to children to pay attention to something, you have to stimulate their curiosities. In this sense, my product can add benefits to make reading a read the book more exciting and enjoyable.
Moreover it is also a universal design because blind children can also use it without discrimination as letters can change to Braille points. As a result, they can enjoy a book at the same time together and it can be used throughout life to record memories.
