When the brothers came to the river, they found that the fog was too heavy and it was hazy.
They mistook the grass for the water bird, the dead tree for the fawn, and the dirt for the crocodile…
This is an optical illusion game, full of unknown and thrilling.
They recovered from the thrill and thought it was their own power to resolve the thrill…
Perhaps in the future, they will proudly repeat this extraordinary experience, but they may never know the whole thing…
Is the truth really as we have seen with our own eyes?

What you see is not necessarily true.
“A River Tour”: A “thrilling” optical illusion game.

It does not seem to be true, the truth needs to be verified! ——Zou Beibei, founder of Whole Life for Children’s

Place yourself on the boat and explore the river and mist with the teenagers. ——Zhou Minggang, teacher of Suzhou Preschool Teachers College and Researcher of children’s literature
