Playing with Books
HIDE AND SEEK by David Carter. Tate (Abrams), 2012.
I have had a collection of pop up books for as long as I can recall. I would place them around the classroom back when I was teaching middle school. As I was filling out forms and collecting monies from the kids, they were free to roam around and interact with the books. At first, they were a little shy: too cool, I suspect. But little by little they would begin to manipulate the tabs, giggle, and then share books with one another. And now we have HIDE AND SEEK, a book with pop-ups but also with objects hidden inside the pop-ups. This is one to share with kids in laps or during story time. <416>
