A pop-up book of this elegance is a first for us on the #MelAndNikkiReview and we feel so honored to have been able to review it. Each page is breathtaking and the phrases are inspirational. We just loved this book very much that we highly recommend it to all.
We give Believe A Pop-Up Book of Possibilities 10 stars out of 5! It is innovative, inspiring and simply breath taking. It is recommended for children ages five to eight but as we mentioned previously, it would be great for anyone.
We received a Q&A that was done with the author, Robert Sabuda that we are sharing some of it as we loved getting the authors perspective.
Believe is not only a beautiful book physically; it also contains a multitude of beautiful and inspiring sentiments. What inspired you to share this hopeful message?
“There have been countless times when I wasn’t sure I could overcome life’s challenges. I hope that Believe will remind readers that they’re not alone and to continue forging ahead through life.”
Throughout the book, the theme of possibility is evoked when an image, like an acorn or a paper airplane, is followed by a 3-D pop up of what that thing could be, like a towering tree or a rocket soaring upward. How did you develop the text and visual pairings to communicate this message?
“When faced with a challenge, I sometimes feel kind of small – but hopefully not for long! I understand and recognize that life can be a little scary when you feel small. Being able to visualize yourself into something bigger, something better, really appeals to me. The ideas just seemed to flow out of me when I remembered what it was like to feel small and then how great it felt to move on and become big again.”
What do you love the most about being an artist, author, and paper engineer?
“I love the fact that I’m a bookmaker and that the creative fruits of my labor can be shared by millions!”
