Today's Wonder of the World is...the Pop-Up Book!

Doesn't every child love a pop- up book? And almost every adult too? (Except the grouchy cynics. And the book snobs.)
Come on! They're fun, people!
Some books are so interesting I'd like to hang them on my walls!

If I had to crown the kings of the Pop Up Book world, they would have to be Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart. They've created some truly incredible books, both individually and in collaboration with each other.
I always find it inspiring to hear writers and artists talk about their work, so I really enjoyed this little interview with étapes. Don't let the French intro scare you. The discussion is all in English, beginning around the 20 second mark.
Cool, huh? Photos just don't do this topic justice.
Won't you take a couple more minutes to hop over HERE and watch the video? Pretty please? It adds one more creative form to the pop up story/art mix--a beautiful song by Lisa Hannigan!
Enjoy, my friends! Have a wonder-full Wednesday!
Before you skedaddle, tell me, do you have a favorite pop-up book? One for kids? Adults? The Pop-Up Book of Phobias? The one of nightmares?
Now that my kids are long past the pop-up destroying stage, I just might start a new collection!
