The Elmer Pop-Up Book
Andersen, 1996 (1980)
Reviewed by Bob Walch
oin this colorful, patchwork elephant as he romps with his friends. Each double page spread has multiple moving parts, from pop-up sections to pull tabs and flip the flap windows. Open the first page and up pops a giraffe, while behind a rock is a snake that uncoils. And if you gently pull the insect atop a plant, you'll see it grow and double its height. Also, don't forget to pull Elmer's tab to see what he will do!
his picture book has some clever moving parts, but some of them are a bit delicate and will easily rip, so be careful. Adults will want to assist younger children with some of the pull tabs so there's not a problem. Also, see if you can find where the grumpy owl is hiding out in each section. He doesn't like being disturbed when he's sleeping during the day.
