Review: Winter - A Pop-Up Book

David A Carter has long established himself as a creator of really beautiful pop-up books for little ones, and in Winter, he has created another little pocket of delight for kids to marvel over.

Featuring a simple, short narrative (making it ideal for the very young), the addition of scene labels (pond, farmhouse, animal tracks, snowflakes) make it a great way for toddlers to learn words by sight.

Occasionally each scene features a lift-the-flap, where kids can discover little critters sleeping. Sleeping animals also hide behind the central pop-up feature of some pages, making this book a wonderful voyage of exploration.

The cover and pop-ups are just divine, but the design elements of the flat-page scenes and fonts don't seem to be up to the usual standard of Carter's books. This is a design aficionado speaking! but this is nonetheless a gorgeous book that kids will love to explore.
