Charles Dickens "A Christmas Carol" A Pop-Up Book {Review}

There's only a week left before Christmas, but still time to pick up this classic tale to bring home and share with your loved ones.  Most of us have probably heard the story as a child or watched it as a movie... in some form or another most people know of Charles Dickens "A Christmas Carol".   The tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future.  This book has a new way to read and look at the story though- in  POP-UP form!
Every page has a beautifully intricate and detailed scene from the story illustrated by Chuck Fischer- it's a book both young and old will enjoy.  For younger children you can go from memory and tell a shortened version of the tale while just letting them look at the pictures.  There's also hidden treasures on some of the pages so there's lots to see.  For the older kids and adults, there are five removable mini-books throughout, one on each page.  The first one is a biography of Charles Dickens the author, the remaining four books include the entire text of "A Christmas Carol".
This would make a great addition to your bookshelf at home, a holiday classic to read and look at, over and over every year.  A new tradition with your children (just don't let the real little ones actually get ahold of it as there's lots that can be torn off if not careful).  This is one of those books you'll want to have in the family for a long time, sharing the tale as it was once told to you.

You can find "A Christmas Carol" pop-up book by Chuck Fischer from these retailers, and locally at stores like Barnes & Noble and Walmart.
