Tao’s Great Journey
App-Supported Augmented Reality
Mindfulness Book for Children
Mindfulness-based interactive book for children ages 6-8. The book combines games and practices and teaches children how to deal with emotional challenges in daily life. The story revolves around Tao, who comes from another planet and searches for a true friend that will join him on a progressive journey throughout three special islands to discover his “hidden powers”.
My goal was to make mindfulness tools accessible to every child, with the intention to help them find calm in an accelerating world. This project was my bachelor thesis at the end of my university design studies.
In the book there is three islands - each exposing a different mindfulness skill (“The Island of Breath”, “The Island of Observation”, “The Island of Feelings”). The book can be read as a regular book, but can be extended by an app using augmented reality to encourage further games and practices.
