Pop-up Gift Books

Well, the holidays are upon us!  Books are a hard gift during the holidays.  They lack the flash and wow factor of many presents they are sitting next to.  However ... it has come to my attention that many of you will give them anyway.  So my job is to give you some selections that won't get lost next to a PS3 game, a Barbie Dream House or an iTunes gift card.  It isn't easy but I am up for the challenge.  So give the gift of a book for Christmas ... if you must!

I will post twice a week during the holidays and will include gift selections for Picture Books, Early Readers, Middle Grade Chapter Books, Teen/Tween as well as Gift Books.

This post I am focusing on Pop-up books  Pop-up books, by their very nature, feel like a little present every time you turn the page.  Some have gotten so artistic that they are better suited for adults than kids.  However, these selections are squarely in the kid camp and are meant to be enjoyed, not displayed on a shelf. So pop open a few - here are some of my favorites!

blog imageHide and Seek by David A. Carter is a wonderful 3D pop up book in the vein of the Can You Find It? books.  A wonderful sculpture pops up on every page and readers are encouraged to find "A fish and a teardrop.  Five black spots, four blossoms blue and a T that is white."  These are just a few of the items readers can hunt for.  There is something new to discover each time you read the book.  To purchase this book from Amazon click here: Hide and Seek blog image

Star Wars: A Galactic Pop-Up Adventure
Star Wars: A Galactic Pop-up Adventure by Matthew Reinhart is a must have for your Star Wars fan!  Change Anakin Skywalker into Darth Vader, and come face to face with some of the biggest villains in the galaxy!  This book explores the three prequel movies as well as the Clone Wars and is just fun!  To purchase this book from Amazon, click here: Star Wars: A Galactic Pop-up Adventure

The Happy Little Yellow Box: A Pop-Up Book of Opposites by David Carter is a delightful book for preschool children.  Each opposite, such as high and low or near and far, includes an interactive pop up or pull tab experience for the child.  Graphically this book is so engaging it can stand alone, even without the hands on features, but those serve to make it all the more fun!  To purchase this book from Amazon, click here: The Happy Little Yellow Box: A Pop-Up Book of Opposites
