Pop Up Books For Kids
As a child I always loved pop up books. I found I would not only enjoy the story itself but could get lost in a wonderful make believe world of my own. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a perfect example of this.
After sitting and enjoying the story with your child encourage them to let their imaginations run wild. Let them become the characters in the book following along the yellow brick road. Let them re-write the story in their own words. Perhaps rather than meeting the tin man along the way they meet a friendly bear that wants to join them on their journey to Oz.
Good and bad witches could become magicians that perform tricks for them. There are so many ways in which this story could go.
From the time I was a child people would tell me I had quite an imagination, and as a mother I've always tried to pass this down to my own boys. I feel children of all ages should be able to explore and escape into a world of fantasy and make believe. It truly can bring out amazing creativity.
In this 100th anniversary publication of The Wizard of Oz, Emerald City sparkles and comes alive in this book. Follow along with Dorothy, The Tin Woodman, and Scarecrow in three dimensional pop up glory.
Recommended for children ages 3-7.
This is the perfect book for children to find waiting under the tree this year for Christmas.
