School Bugs: An Elementary Pop-up Book
David A. Carter, . . S&S/Little Simon, $11.99 (20pp) ISBN 978-1-4169-5056-1
With zany irreverence, Carter’s bugs return in a pop-up book that features them popping out of a red schoolhouse, then hiding in colorful, themed boxes. Readers can discover “Who’s in the reading box?” by lifting the flap of a blue box decorated with white letters (26 “Spelling Bees” are inside). In the “music box,” the “Beetle Bugs,” dressed as their namesakes, pop up, singing “yeah, yeah, yeah.” The text may be simple, but the well-executed pop-ups will entertain. Ages 3–up.
