How to use a QR code audio book
If you're reading this, it's likely that your child brought home a book with a QR code in the front of it. Hopefully these instructions will make it clearer and easier for you to use this book with your child, to enjoy both the visual and audio components.
What is a QR code?
A QR code is a special type of two-dimensional barcode that can be read using a special app on your smartphone or tablet. (Follow this link for a list of the best ones grouped by device).
How do I use the QR code?
On the inside cover of the book your child brought home, you will find the QR code. It looks similar to the one above. Open the QR reader app on your device, and hold it over the QR code, lining up the corners on the screen with the corners of the QR code.
The reader will pause for a second, and should then direct you to a webpage where the story can be listened to via a web based player. This will play an audio recording of the story, so you can listen and read along with your child.
