Pop-Up Books: A Guide for Teachers and Librarians
324 pages • 8½ x 11
Pop-up books have great appeal. Currently there is an explosion of movable books available in the market place. Everyone (preschool to adults) loves to admire and touch the beautiful work of Robert Sabuda and others. However, traditionally, these books have not been purchased for use and/or circulation in libraries. This book advocates for the inclusion of interactive or movable books in the library collection and for their use as motivational instructional tools. Profiles of the most notable author/illustrators, a history of the format, definitions (what is a flap book, a paper engineer etc.), and a section on collection problems with the format (how to acquire, where to buy, how to store) as well as a section on how to create movable books and an annotated listing of the author's favourite pop-ups are all helpful additions.
