Baumann, Anne-Sophie Eek! A Mouse Seek and Peek Book Twirl(Chronicle), 2016. $19.99 PICTURE POP-UP BOOK
This detailed book features a group of mice searching a house from top to bottom for stuff to create a celebration with. They get into everything! From tool boxes to a bedroom safe to food in the kitchen. Each page is stuffed with lift the flap activities, some sliders, and some popups. The last page features a large double page popup created by the mice with what they collected in their search.
This is a really fun book! Children will love spending time peering into each flap and searching for mice. There are some fun things to find and cute illustrations. It would hold up better than a true pop-up book, because only one page is a true fold-out large popup. There isn’t much a story to it, per se, but each little flap reveals words to be read. Some of the features are trickier, so not great for pre-k.
