This year it was the 50th anniversary of man’s first step on the moon. So, it is no surprise that there has been an influx of children’s book published around the theme of space. Therefore, it would take something special for a book to stand out among the others on the shelves. What could be more stand out than a POP-UP book?!
Pop-up Moon is published by Thames & Hudson and has been a real team effort in its production! The text is by Anne Jankeliowitch and it’s illustrated by Annabelle Buxton. Olivier Charbonnel is the paper engineer behind the four amazing and intricate pop-ups! I’ve never seen a pop up book quite like this one!
Pop-up Moon is, as the title suggests, a space book dedicated to the dazzling magic of the moon. Within its pages, you can find out where the moon came from, why it sometimes looks different shapes and colours, and of course it discusses Neil Armstrong and Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin creating history by becoming the first men to set foot on the moon.
If you have a future astronaut in your household, then I definitely recommend Pop-up Moon.
