**GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED**
Pop-up books are so fun for kids. One thing I’ve noticed since becoming a mom, is that there is a whole new generation of pop-up books……they didn’t have books like this when I was a kid. Our favorite is a new pop-up book from Silver Dolphin Books, Peter Pan, by J.M. Barrie & Paul Hess, retold by Libby Hamilton.
Here’s the scoop:
Join Peter, Tinkerbell and the Darling children on a magical adventure to Neverland. This new Classic Pop-Ups book brings the beloved J.M. Barrie tale to life with marvelous illustrations by Paul Hess, extraordinary pop-ups, and atmospheric sounds and music.
This book is aimed for children ages 4 and up, but my daughter at 3 has claimed this one as a favorite already. The classic story, a bit different from the Disney version she’s used to, is just fine, but what she really loves is the special effects. Oh, my! She loves to turn the pages and see what pops up……the pop-ups are so creative. We’re talking Big Ben (the famous English clock) reaching towards the ceiling and the crocodile trying to get Captain Hook. AND…. the final one is a huge ship……it really comes out of the book like nothing I’ve ever seen before.
I’m really impressed by the music….so beautiful yet fun. My favorite is the first piece, where Big Ben ticks throughout the music.
Of course Silver Dolphin Books has a wide selection of books for preschoolers through 12-year olds. Over 130 titles, including another Pop-up book that I’d love to have in our library, The Wizard of Oz (Classic Pop Ups).
One (1) lucky winner will receive a childrens book of their choice from Silver Dolphin Books.
