This morning at grandpa’s house, I take a moment to read a pop-up book by Robert Sabuda, the paper engineering genius. I marvel over the intricate designs and how, when you turn a page, an entire world unfolds in another dimension. The book enters the room, right upon my lap. Why haven’t I found these books before?
On Mr. Sabuda’s website, he teaches you how to make your own pop-up creations. I cannot wait to try them. Maybe I’ll invite my children to join me.
Sometimes, you leave the digital book and remember the wonder of paper and turning pages. With pop-up books, you remember what it means to interact with texture and smells, sounds and movement.
I’m going to try my hand at the reindeer, snowman, and angel. Living with flair means you read a pop-up book and remember the ancient enjoyment of books you hold in your hand.
Do you remember the wonder of pop-up books?
