Oh, how I loved reading this classic for the first time with Gage. This pop-up book with all of the original text was amazing! The three of us read a chapter at night for family reading time and I don’t know how we’re going to top it with our next family book. Here’s a pic of one of the pages.
Some of them just popped up and some of them had more interactive features. It was well done and I plan on buying a copy since this one is from the library.
As for the story itself. Jason and I laughed at the making fun of adults and sometimes Gage didn’t get the joke, but otherwise the story was a fun adventure story of a young prince from another planet. Well, it was fun until the end. For some reason I was not prepared for the end. It led to good discussion with Gage, especially since he’s been asking me very specific questions about Heaven these days.
I don’t know what took me so long to read this, but this is a fun book to read with your child and the pop-ups will only bring it more to life for the both of you.
This was my 25th selection for the Classics Club challenge. I have until January 1, 2020 to get to 50.
