America the Beautiful A Pop-up Book Author:Robert Sabuda, Katherine Lee Bates Master paper engineer Robert Sabuda has interpreted the classic American anthem "America the Beautiful" in dazzling dimension. From the Golden Gate Bridge to Mount Rushmore to the Statue of Liberty, America has never looked more spectacular. This stunning keepsake masterpiece will be shared and admired by generations to come; indeed it... more » is a national treasure in and of itself.
This is not like the pop-up books of my youth! As you open the pages, the Golden Gate Bridge folds itself out, there's a nice farm and field, Mount Rushmore, a Mesa Verde scene, A Mississippi River steamboat, buildings from Washington DC (Capitol, Washington Monument & Lincoln Memorial), and the very impressive Statue of Liberty. Robert Sabuda makes intricately engineered pop-ups, they are 3-dimensional and really stand out since they are all white on simply colored backgrounds. The text in this book is from the song America the Beautiful. Would be great for patriotic kids.
