Amazing pop-ups for all ages. Young children learn a little geography, American history, and engineering via the verses of Katherine Lee Bates song, America the Beautiful; adults just say Wow! The visual effects overwhelm the text: the pop-ups---with string, bits of wood, silver ribbon and foil---are magnificent. Be careful---it is easily torn and broken; young children should be warned to not touch ANYTHING.Shown are San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge (engineering, math-the shape of the cables supporting the bridge); the great plains (agriculture rural life, food); Mount Rushmore (four presidents and their roles in American history, sculpture); Mesa Verde (American Indian life, dwellings, climate, geography); a paddle boat on the Mississippi River (transportation, commerce, geography, Industrial Revolution, boats, physics, engineering, and how slightly opening and closing the spread makes the silver ribbons/water move at the back of the boat); The Capital, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and reflecting pool between the latter two in Washington, D.C. (government, American History, architecture); the Statue of Liberty with New York City's Chrysler Building, Empire State Building, and other skyscrapers in the background (symbols, France, world history, elevators, competition, cars, Emma Lazarus, poetry, immigration). A booklet at the end has even more pop-ups and other verses of the song: World Trade Center, Liberty Bell, NASA space shuttle, and the American bald eagle.

Sabuda is an excellent pop-up artist. I buy his books because I think they are so cool.

We own a couple other Sabuda pop-up books and were disappointed in the lack of color and technical intricacies in this one. We had such high hopes and bought America the Beautiful without seeing it first based on our passed experience with his work. We are sorry we did so. :-(

Robert Sabuda is a true artist, this is a little more simple and definatley less colorful than a number of his other more impressive books.

I love this book! My friend brought this book into class one day and it was amazing work. She is related to the author so we got to see it before anyone else.I LOVE THIS POP UP BOOK! It's also fun for little kids to look at the pop ups and learn about our country at the same time.

Robert Sabuda has gone beyond mastering the art of pop-up books and typical children's books. He has taken the art to a new level. What a pleasure sharing this book with my students.

Robert Sabuda is far and away the most fitting author for such a compelling children's book. The images figuratively, and literally, leap off the page. I was stunned to see the skill with which America's most recognizable icons were presented in this terrific book. A treasure! Pick up your copy IMMEDIATELY!
