Now, even the youngest readers can enjoy a travel guide just for them! In Lonely Planet Kids’ Pop-up London, youngsters can sail across the Thames to see a few exciting landmarks in London, England. Each page features a simply illustrated pop-up to help make the particular location come to life. The first pop-up is of a skyscraper called “The Shard.” Next, enjoy a view of a famous Buckingham Palace guard, followed by the Tower of London, Trafalgar Square, the London Underground, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. The text is very sparse in this book which makes it suitable for toddlers – if you have a toddler that isn’t prone to tearing the pop-ups apart. Even though the word count is very low, the information is still interesting and fresh. For instance, I didn’t know there was a building in London called “The Cheesegrater.” That’s definitely a fun fact, perfect for the young readers the book is meant for, as well as the person sharing the book with them. The illustrations are highly stylized and brightly colored which works for this particular book. A surprisingly fun and informative book for being so little.
