For the child that adores pop-up books (and who doesn’t have one of those?!) this entertaining new book from Jean-Luc Fromental and Joëlle Jolivet is just plain fun! A chilly winter backdrop sets the stage for the antics of these penguins in 10 Little Penguins: A Pop-Up Book. This is a great gift for any child this holiday season, especially those just learning to count! Plus, the book is small enough that it can be tucked into a larger stocking if desired, rather then placed under the tree.
This inventive pop-up, featuring the mischievous stars of Jean-Luc Fromental and Joëlle Jolivet’s 365 Penguins, starts with ten penguins on an icy shore. One by one, they playfully disappear from the scene as the text counts down from ten to zero. The flaps embedded in the book facilitate the story—readers can make the penguins disappear and reappear! It’s a stylish, humorous take on a counting book with winter-friendly, penguin-filled pop-ups.
To order a copy of 10 Little Penguins: A Pop-Up Book for your little penguin in time for the holidays, please visit Abrams Books.
