The Christmas Story by Robert Sabuda [Review & Giveaway USA/CANADA]

ISBN-13: 978-1406369557
My thoughts: Exquisite! Stunning! Beautiful! This is a treasure book that makes a memorable gift to a child that caring parents, aunts, and uncles will choose. Parents will love it as will the children. Care will be taken to preserve it for future generations to handle and love with awe.

I highly recommend my readers to gift a copy to some child and family during this holiday season.

Check out the beautiful video below and be sure you have the sound turned on!

Then check out the giveaway which Candlewick Press has so graciously provided so that one of Chat With Vera's readers can also enjoy!





About the book: The Nativity is brought to life by master pop-up artist Robert Sabuda in six gorgeously imagined 3-D scenes, making this a Christmas gift book to treasure. Long ago, in a stable in Bethlehem, a baby was born on a bright and starry night. This child was the Son of God and he would be the saviour of all mankind. The wondrous story of the birth of Jesus - born in a stable, laid in a manger, visited by shepherds and the three wise men - is exquisitely imagined by pop-up artist Robert Sabuda in six scenes. Glinting with touches of gold and pearlescent foil, The Christmas Story is a visual delight and a book for whole family to treasure at Christmas.

  3. I searched out the author's Web site via bing and I liked many things, but the Santa's sleigh pop-up card was probably the most amazing and beautiful thing.

  5. I think pop-up books should be in a child's library. There is nothing like turning a page in a book and seeing the scene come to life.

  9. I think pop-up books do still have a place in children's literature because the really bring like to the story in a way that ordinary pictures cannot.

  19. I think Popup books are a great way to bring a story to life. Just like a movie, they can see and imagine about the story. It helps them remember the book more. I also love the beauty of Popup Books, every time you open it you see something different.

  22. I had a desert animal pop up book as a child. I don't really remember too much of the story. I remember I loved it because of the pop up animals.

  23. I think pop up books bring the story to life for children.Pop Up books immediately draw children's attention. Children just have to be supervised with them because of their fragility.

  24. Yes, there was a short little book about a boy riding to the moon on his rocking horse, with his doll and pet kitten. I loved that little pop up book. We also had several disney books, and an amazing Christmas pop up book I loved.

  25. Some of my children's favorite books are pop-ups. They are fragile yes, but like many things, worth wearing out.
