An image of a young girl interacting with the AR book. She is stood facing away from the camera, she has brunette hair in two high plaits, tied with orange hair ties. In front of her is an iPad on a stand, on the iPad we can see an orange ball with a blue stripe across the middle and a blue star, on a black and white background. In the bottom right hand corner there is a person using BSL to describe what is happening. Behind the iPad we can see an ordinary small black and white book with an image of the ball and some other undetectable images. The iPad stand is on a black table. There are various other objects on this table, including a white paper bag with 'Where is the Bird' written on it. Behind the girl, is an older white woman crouching down with her hands on her knees. She has dark brunette hair, a fringe and has her hair tied back in a half up half down style. She is smiling and wearing a mustard long sleeve top under a dark burgundy dungaree dress with black tights. The image looks as if it has been taken in a library with light wooden floor, other children, colourful stalls and book shelves blurred in the background
