Believe: A Pop-up Book of Possibilities

Robert Sabuda. Candlewick, $27.99 (24p) ISBN 978-0-7636-6397-1
Sabuda’s small pop-up book offers light affirmations for the future: “When I grow up/ I will stand tall./ When I strive for my goals/ I will savor the outcome./ When I share my dreams/ we will fly together.” Gracefully engineered pop-up forms representing potential, growth, and progress accompany the uplifting lines. With a turn of the page, a printed bee becomes a garden of sunflowers; a paper airplane evolves into a 3-D rocket ship (“From a humble beginning/ to a life among the stars”). Sabuda provides striking contrast between the delicate white paper of the pop-ups and the eye-catching colors of the spreads, elevating the sophistication of this congratulatory volume. Ages 5–8.
