First Interactive 3D Children's Book?

Finland has published the world's first interactive 3D animation story book to offer children a brand new experience, according to Finnish media report Tuesday.

The 3D animation story book for children is just like ordinary fairy books, only with some special small black squares in some pages of it to indicate the interactive 3D animation. Once the web camera faces toward a black square, 3D-animation cartoon figures and pictures will appear in computer screen.

The question mark at the end of this post title is well-placed, as I'm afraid this information is incorrect.

The Salariya Book Company published the first books to use augmented reality technology in conjunction with a children's story in April this year. See the links below to these 'Book, Webcam, Action!' books, including a video demonstration on YouTube:
