Synopsis: People, animals, and places, from ancient times to the present, spring to life from these imaginative and entertaining pop-up books. Multitiered illustrations will delight young readers as well as adults. These highly involving books have from five to seven pop-up spreads and, in most cases, one or two action devices on every page.
From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3--Animals Showing Off plays better than it reads. On every page surprises leap out to delight readers. Crickets chirp, ostriches flap their wings, and blue-footed boobies dance in an endless mating ritual. There are tabs to pull, flaps to flip, and details to ponder. The text, which is basic at best, discusses ways in which mammals, fish, and birds entice, frighten, and fool each other. However, visually this book is so appealing that its point is well made. It should encourage more detailed exploration and reading by students, so this fun-filled volume is a worthy addition to nature sections. Dinosaurs is so clever and exciting that serious consideration should be given to its purchase. It's a truly three-dimensional work in which dinosaurs leap out at the turn of a page; icthyornis fly through the air; bone heads do battle at the tug of a tab. Turn a flap and a baby dinosaur pops out of an egg while a less fortunate hatchling is stolen by a lizard. The text describes most major dinosaurs as well as some that are lesser known. Teachers and librarians will find use for this book in book talks, displays, and, heaven forbid, circulation. Neither book has an index, table of contents, chapters, or even a title page. --Eva Elisabeth Von Ancken, Trinity Pawling School, N.Y.
