This Saturday, I spent most of my time in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens gift shop looking at pop up books in the children’s section. Why? It turns out I’m equally as enthralled by books with bugs, fairies, monkeys, carousels, etc. that jump out as me as an adult as I was as a kid. What’s extra cool about pop up books is they’re not too hard to make. All you need is some paper, glue, an exacto knife and a pair of scissors. Maybe some tape and glitter for emergencies. Don’t believe me? Go to Materials for the Arts on Tuesday night. They’re offering a class about making pop ups, flag books and tunnel books. Go here to pre register.
