Brilliant pop-up books

one red dotThis week’s grade 1-5 library classes looked at the amazing art of paper engineering. We looked at David A. Carter’s series of colour themed pop-up books, One Red Dot, Blue 2, 600 Black Spots, Yellow Square and White Noise. These fascinating books are not for borrowing as they are so fragile, but students are welcome to enjoy them in the library.

We also made some simple pop-ups of our own, to be used as Christmas gifts or cards, and talked about how paper crafts are a great idea for filling an idle moment during the holidays.

See you all again in three weeks!
