Pop-Up books are just great, aren’t they. These books are true treasures, the craftsmanship is amazing, and although fragile, they provide many opportunities for entertainment and joy.

Here is our little list of Pop-Up Books that we love:

 How to Find Flower Fairies by Cicely Mary Baker, this book is a treasure! It has scenes in which to find fairies (oak tree, a garden, a pond..) along with little notes. There are many items to look  for: tiny footprints, a fairy house, a face peering from behind a leaf. Magical book with stunning artwork.

 “Star Wars”: A Galactic Pop=Up Adventure  by Matthew Reinhart, oh my, what a book! My little Star Wars fans found little side flaps and massive paper sculptures on everything regarding Star Wars Universe- characters, settings and vehicles. Amazing book.

D. is eyeing  “Star Wars”: A Pop-Up Guide to the Galaxy by Matthew Reinhart for a future present, and it looks awesome indeed.

 The Little Prince: Deluxe Pop-Up Book by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, delightful unabridged text accompanied by Saint-Exupery’s own illustrations realized in pop-up, flaps and moving pieces. This book is absolutely beautiful and adds something special to the story time. We read a little bit each night and savor the text and illustrations alike. This book is quite large comparing to the regular, non pop-up edition, so the illustrations are bigger too and children absolutely love it.

Journals of Inventions: Leonardo DaVinci by Jaspre Bark. This book is absolutely amazing. It has a look and feel of an actual DaVinci Journal and has models of inventions that pop-up, fold out and move. This book was a great help with our DaVinci study too.

The Snow Queen:A Pop-Up Adaptation of a Classic Fairytale by Evgeniya Yeretskaya is a masterpiece, beautiful art!

There are many pop-up books out there (although not as many as I previously thought). They are on the pricier side of book market, but they make a fantastic gift and are well worth the investment. Many libraries stock them as well. One thing in my personal experience to consider before buying, is the age of the recipient. Some paper pieces in pop-ups withstand only careful handling, so when it comes to the littlest readers, these books can be enjoyed with the help of an adult or an older child.

 Happy Reading!
