Format: Hardcover
This is an absolutely stunning book to look at, and will delight young and old. Full of imagination and amusing interpretations of some favorite nursery rhymes. The only drawback is that some of the rhymes chosen are a bit obscure. Not just for children!

Mother Goose Pops Up 8 Dec. 1999
By pengwynneS@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Robert Sabuda is my hero. His paper engineering is without equal so I took his Movable Mother Goose to a first grade classroom to try it out. The kids loved the rhymes, and as the "payoff" for reading them out loud, they got to DEMO the popup that went with the rhyme. The book not only survived all 25 kids reading and demonstrating the popup, they even learned how to carefully tuck the delicate paper pieces back so that the book would not get trashed. I don't think kids ever outgrow their love of popups, and I am also convinced that popups are THE perfect birthday present for every kid (and sometimes even for adults)so I'm glad that Sabuda has tackled this classic poetry. I'd recommend this one for ages five to eight, but even high school kids would enjoy it and start thinking of ways to build popups for their own favorite nursery rhymes using David Carter's book, The Elements of Pop-Up, a Book for Aspiring Paper Engineers.

glorious, sometimes busy, pop-up classic 24 Feb. 2002
By audrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was thrilled to find that genius paper engineer Sabuda was tackling these classic rhymes, and the book lives up to expectations. The artist's work is, as always, creative and fun.
There are six two-page spreads, each with a large central figure (one of Bo-peep's sheep, Miss Muffet's spider, a peacock, the hickory dickory clock, Mr. and Mrs. Sprat, and a pie bursting with blackbirds) and several smaller rhyme fold-outs. This set-up makes the book a little "busy" in my opinion, but our two-year old adores it, so what's my aesthetic sensibility matter? The material is heavy paper, and it's held up well to our toddler's exploration. Some of the mechanisms are a little confusing and/or delicate, but nothing especially difficult. Nice, bright colors are employed for the animal characters used to illustrate these tales, usually to comic effect.
This is a lovely book for children, and would likely make a good first pop-up.

The best baby gift 1 Mar. 2001
By Katie Dewees - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was a gift to my daughter when she was born. We have read it to her ever since then and she adores it! If she is cranky, she will get quiet when she sees us reach for the book. The illustrations are captivating, to say the least.

A bit disappointing 11 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
While I loved the conceptual design of the book, I found the quality of the paper and printing to be poor. The first time I -an adult- tried to open the 4 and 20 blackbirds page (very gingerly), I managed to rip it in one place. This just should not happen for a children's book!! Perhaps the type of paper used is too rigid for the movement. Colors were not as vibrant on the inside of the book, either.
