|ABC3D by Marion Bataille|
ABC3D allows readers to see and interact with the alphabet. It's a simple book with parts that flip, slide out, twist, reflect and, of course, pop-up. See the book in action here:
|Cookie Count by Robert Sabuda|
Cookie Count: A Tasty Pop-up explores numbers through what is probably the most appealing way possible: cookies. Kids can practice counting as they flip through all the tasty treats found in this book. Check out the grand finale: a stunning gingerbread house!
|Bugs Pop Up: Creepy Crawlers Face to Face by Sally Hewitt|
Bugs Pop-up is an award-winner that offers a close-up investigation of insects, spiders and crawling critters. Kids will be impressed by the giant pinchers, stingers, legs and wings that pop out of these startling designs. Like real bugs, the pop-ups are fascinating, yet dangerous. Check out the cautious interest this kid has with the book:
|Snowflakes: A Pop-up Book by Jennifer Preston Chushcoff|
|Alice's Adventures in Wonderland|
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a tale that fits impeccably with Robert Sabuda's creativity. There is a reason his name has shown up several times on this list (he's done several books, including classic tales, and they're all great). My favorite parts: peeking inside a small box that reveals Alice's famous fall, and the deck of cards that hangs precariously in midair. See for yourself:
Any book on this list would breathe new life into kids' reading and artistic design interest. If you find any other great pop-up books for young readers, let me know!
Stay tuned for pop-up books for advanced readers!
