Sam's Pop-Up Schoolhouse

Yves Got. Chronicle Books, $16.95 (6pp) ISBN 978-0-8118-3550-3

Characters pop up, peer out and hide behind flaps in a bumper crop of interactive titles, several of which may well spur new angles to playing school. Sam's Pop-Up Schoolhouse by Yves Got opens to reveal three distinct stages for imaginative play (two classrooms and a playground). A satin ribbon holds the stages in place; sturdy cardboard characters (including the bunny star) come tucked inside a blue envelope attached to the back cover; a mini-book and mini-coloring book are also included.
