Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
Published by Candlewick
Summary: The story of Jesus’ birth is told through six intricately designed pop-ups. The text is faithful to the Bible story, beginning with Mary’s visit from the angel announcing the birth, moving on to shepherds and wise men, and concluding with the whole gang gathered at the manger. The pop-ups are all white with golden highlights on a blue background. Go here for a page-by-page preview: https://vimeo.com/174534813. 12 pages; grades K-4.
Pros: The pop-ups are truly amazing, with angels and stars soaring above many of the pages. A beautiful introduction to the Christmas story.
Cons: The fragile nature of the paper art and $26.00 price tag may make this a better choice for a home library than a public one.
