Award
Pop-Up London
(by Jennie Maizels/ paper engineering by Richard Fe, Candlewick $19.99 Score:)

Just in time for the Olympics, here's a way to share more details about this great city. Most text is hidden under the flaps, but the wonder here is having some of London's landmarks, including London Bridge pop-up off of the page in 3D.

2011 Award
Robert Crowther Amazing Pop-Up Trucks
(by Robert Crowther, Candlewick $17.99 Score:)

Five truly remarkable pop-up trucks spring from the pages of this amazing new book. A garbage truck, monster truck, concrete transport, car transporter, and truck train lift up as you read about the work they do and how they do it. Like most elaborate pop-ups, this is one you will want to keep on a high shelf to share when you can supervise, unless you are not going to be very upset when little hands do what little hands do. That said, this is also a good opportunity for teaching kids about gentle ways with delicate things.

2011 Award
Dragons & Monsters
(by Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda, Candlewick $29.99 Score:)

The masters of the pop-up book, deliver yet another spectacular title that features all things dragons and monsters throughout history.  Once you get passed the wow factor, you'll see that this is really a first look at mythology as well as Eastern and Western folk lore.  It's just this type of book that can get a reluctant reader engaged! Marked 5 & up, but the subject matter is really more for older school aged kids.

2010 Award
Robert Crowther’s Amazing Pop-Up Big Machines
(by Robert Crowther, Candlewick $17.99 Score:)

It is not an exaggeration to say that this is one amazing pop-up book. Each page has a working machine that becomes a play setting with moving parts. The text folds out and tells what the machine does. It's hard to say which of these is the mast awesome—the dump truck, bulldozer, tractor, forklift or tower crane. There are extra play pieces in pockets and even directions for making each machine work. They say 4 & up, but we’d say you will need to supervise the way this is handled to avoid tears over broken machines. This is a work of paper engineering art!

2008 Awards
Robert Crowther Pop-Up House of Inventions
(by Robert Crowther, Candlewick $17.99 Score:)

Kids often don't even think about the fact that there have not always been zippers, email, mirrors or soap. In a clever pop-up format, Crowther creates six typical rooms of a house and labels the many typical items in each room with thumbnail bits of information about inventions. This update is not radically different from the original. It's still a fun book for sparking an interest in history and how things were. 6 & up.

(by Kate Petty & Jennie Maizels, Dutton $22.95 Score:) Compare the relative sizes of the pop-up mountains; discover how long it would take to travel from New York to Tokyo if you were a bee or a snail. Concepts like capitals, landmarks, biggest, smallest, and more are presented in small quizzes with maps that kids use to find the answers. Gives geography a new lift! 7 and up.

Vroom! Vroom!
(by Steve Augarde, Little Brown $13.95 Score:) If you have a race car fanatic this pop up pull the tabs book will be a winner. There's no story to speak of but plenty of action on every page. Wisely marked not for kids under three- this is not likely to stand up to rough riders!

Age: Toddlers,Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2002.

2008 Award
Robert Crowther Ships, A Pop-Up Book
(by Robert Crowther, Candlewick $17.99 Score:)

With handsome pop-ups to add to the drama, Ships takes young readers on a voyage through the history of ships that move with oars, sails and engines. It’s a good introduction to some big ideas about how ships are powered and what they have been used for through the ages. 7 & up.
