The Book Stack

I have a new obsession…London. It started stirring slowly, but now I’m curious about London. This book sent my curiousity over the edge.

POP UP LONDON by Jennie Maizels and paper engineering by Richard Ferguson, Candlewick Press, 2012.

Now I have nagging questions and bits of stories bouncing around my brain. I want to learn as much as possible. For the first time in my life, I have a strong urge to go visit a faraway place. Andy laughs at me. Meanwhile, I’m intrigued by anything that mentions London.  And just so I’m not the only one with an obsession, check out this glimpse into POP UP LONDON by Jennie Maizels and paper engineering by Richard Ferguson.

As if that’s not enough, check out this other Candlewick book about London:


I’ve not put my hands on this…but I will soon. I love the work of Sara McMenemy. I do have these titles from the series that have been keeping my reading attention this week:


And I totally love this one, mostly because I love visiting Washington D.C. It’ll be available later this month.

WASHINGTON D.C. A 3D KEEPSAKE CITYSCAPE by Sarah McMenemy, Candlewick, 2012

{Make sure to check out Ruth Ayres Writes on Thursday as I share how these books are inspiring some notebook work}.

  1. Christy — I wish! 🙂

    I’ll have to check out BIRD…thanks for the suggestion, @gardenlearning

    JenniferM, you make me smile…and so does Neville, Tam.

    Tara — I’m jealous! Jee– You won’t be sorry. They are super fun little books. (Although they don’t look all that little on the screen!)

    And Linda, you are always so kind. Thanks!


  2. I have gathered books for reading biographies for my 4th graders. We don’t have much time to explore this genre so I have three boxes of picture book biographies. The one that came home with me tonight to read is Bird by Zetta Elliott. ( a new voices award honor book)

    Art, biography, and quiet resilience – the power of pencil to paper. Check it out!


  3. What fun! I love the line “nagging questions and bits of stories bouncing around my brain” — great job showing how your curiosity has been set on fire! P.S. I missed TWT on your break — so glad to see you in my RSS reader again! 🙂
