Magic Portal Books combines virtual reality and your cell phone or tablet to teleport you along an educational journey!

We have recently run into technical difficulties and will need to build a new digital launchpad for Sherman and Sedona to teach children about the wonders of those two cities.

Welcome to

Magic Portal Books!

We do not know when the new platform will be ready, but we are working to create it asap!


We are grateful for all your support and ask for your continued patience during this process.

We're building a new launchpad!

"We live in Tucson during the Winter months, and picked up the Sherman book on our last trip for our grandkids. They have never had the chance to visit us in Tucson, so the absolutely love getting to see what the desert looks like!"

- Glenna R.

"I have never seen anything so amazing from a picture book. It takes learning to a whole new level and accommodates so many different learning styles."

- Amanda S.

"I got both books for my 6- and 9-year-old girls and they both loved these! "Sedona's Quest" is their favorite! Sedona is one of their favorite places to visit, now they can visit it whenever they want."

- Sarah G.

"My 8-year-old son couldn’t wait to show his friends"

- Crystal K.

"I purchased a book for my five-year-old and two-year-old grandsons. I just received this text message from my daughter: We read "Sherman, a Tucson Tortoise" last night. They loved it! They were hanging on every word and laughing! The book mentions Mount Lemmon, so now I can add things like "Mount Lemmon, where Mama learned how to go camping as a little girl."

- Patty U.

Can you please sign a copy for my son?  He borrowed "Sherman, a Tucson Tortoise" from a friend and loved it. I just had to get him one.

- Brice O.
