Ò Pop-up New York ↠´ Download by ½ Jennie Maizels Great art work.
Received this book in no time, as a gift for my 10 yr old grandson, who will be visiting NYC with me this summer The content and illustrations of the book are spot on, in that they include every site that we will be visiting, and describes them in an interesting way for someone his age The pop ups are colorful and realistic depictions However, several of them have to be manipulated manually, in order for them to pop up all the way There was no shrink wrap on the book, and no padding in the box it came in just put in the box and taped up, to get knocked around during shipping Therefore, I m not sure if the book is actually new, which is what I thought I was purchasing I would have given this book a five if it wasn t for the used appearance, loose pages, and flat pop ups.
Perfect you ll probably like the New York one too She uses the same winning formula in this book with the two sided pop ups one side showing the actual building, the back side giving history and other details The object of the book is not to overwhelm the reader with spectacular paper engineering, but to provide a dizzying array of facts about everything New York The challenge was a little greater in this book because she tried to include all five boroughs in just five spreads Also because there are so many skyscrapers, sometimes the copy is a little hard to read Each spread has a theme, the first one being about the financial district where we see and learn about Wall Street, Battery Park, Vertical City, The New York Trade Center, The Woolworth Building, Freedom Tower, The Brooklyn Bridge and Other spreads revo Lots of quality time has been spent looking through this book It is filled with many many interesting facts about NYC on every page the pictures are in great detail and the pictures have flaps to open to read The popups are awesome and this book has become one of our favorites.
This was a great purchase for my 6 1 2 year old grandson He had recently been to New York City seeing the sights He was thrilled with this book So much so that I had to purchase another one for his friend who also went on the trip Great reminder of their time spent in NYC and all the fun things they got to see and do Thank you
