Reviews - What do customers think about The Amazing Pop-Up Geography Book (Amazing Pop-Ups)?
Not just amazing, but great!! Aug 27, 2007
I really like this book. It is fun for my son because it is a pop-up, but at the same time it is also informative.
Great learning center Aug 6, 2007
I am an elementary school teacher, currently teaching 4th grade. I ordered this book as a review of the various geographic elements in review for the NYS Science and SS assessments. Although this is not a book you can read together as a class (there are just too many small details to cover) I highly recommend this for a small group or independent work station. In order to fully utilize the book, I created questions that covered the various topics on each page which guided the students to explore the book and search for the answers. It is a fabulous learning tool and all of the other teachers who have seen this book keep asking me where I got it!!!!
A Big Hit! Aug 2, 2007
My newphew enjoys books, but this one was a homerun. My sister tells me that he is completely fascinated with this one. He is 5, but there is so much information in the book, I could see older kids enjoying it as well.
Much Fun!! Jan 22, 2007
Amazing is absolutely correct! This book is so full of fun facts! It was given to my sister at Christmas, and all of us adults gathered around and couldn't stop looking at and playing with it!
Amazing Book for Kids and Adults alike Jan 12, 2007
This book is very well done. It has *tons* of stuff to do. There are so many lift up tabs and pop ups that it will keep anyone busy for hours. The content is interesting enough for kids and adults. Highly recommend this book.
