Pop-Up Nativity Book

For a subject such as a nativity scene, a pop-up book is an excellent device. I have several in the collection. This is the latest one:

This is the cover, and as it indicates, the pop-up nativity scene is based on the paintings of the old masters.

When the book is opened it forms the nativity scene which measures about 24 1/2 x 15 x 12 inches.

Thanks for stopping by and do visit more show and Tell at Kelli’s blog, There is No Place Like Home.

  4. I love books like this. I truly do. I can't tell you how many times I've ended up in the Children's section of the book stores. I can't believe what they have for kids now-a-days. I remember our books...hmmmpf!!! What a joke. I want to be a kid again.

    Happy weekend!
