Pop Up Book Lovers - Check Out The Weather Pop Up Book by Maike Biederstaedt

The Weather Pop-Up Book 
by Maike Biederstaedt (September 2021; ISBN: 978-3-7913-7393-5; Hardcover $25; Ages 5+; 15 pages)

In her hugely successful books Creatures of the Deep and What’s in the Egg?, as well as her enormously popular series of greeting cards for the Museum of Modern Art, Maike Biederstaedt has established herself as one of the preeminent paper artists working today. Now Biederstaedt takes book engineering to new heights as she immerses readers in five electrifying weather scenarios. As each spread unfolds, a meticulously designed landscape emerges—a freighter balances like a nutshell between high waves in the sea; a tornado takes terrifying aim at a truck trying to outrun it; a rain-spewing storm cloud towers like a skyscraper over a farm house. Nature’s delicate beauty emerges in the intricate shapes of a snowflake and in the luminous arc of a rainbow. Each page features an informative description of its weather event and the book closes with sobering commentary on the effects of climate change. A wondrous introduction to weather for budding climatologists, this is also an artistic tour de force that collectors will treasure.

The 411:

This pop up weather book from @prestel_publishing was so exciting for my class. I read it to them during circle time and they literally gasped with each page I opened and everyone wanted to touch the red truck. Is it not the coolest! The illustrations are stunning!

While my class wasn't interested in climate change they loved all the beatifically constructed 3D forms. It was a great way to discuss the weather. We discussed the ship on the ocean, the tornado, the dry desert, and frost. My class are 2.5-3 years old so it was on a very broad/elementary scale but they truly loved it!
