I *heart* Pop-up Books: Paddington's Birthday Treat

I was browsing my bookshelves and saw Paddington Bear. Many months ago, I bought this mini pop-up book for fun. It's a cute book to read aloud to young children. In Paddington's Birthday Treat, Paddington goes to the beach with the Brown family. He is having lots of fun there and he even crashed course his way to water skiing!

First sentence: Like all bears, Paddington has two birthdays a year—one in the summer and the other in the winter.

This is the cover of the small but fun book.
Lovely illustration and pop-ups.
Paddington water skis in a very stylish way that involves an umbrella!

It's been so long since I've read or opened a pop-up book and Paddington brought back lovely memories for me when I was a kid. I always love "going" on an adventure with him. Go Paddington!

Do you like pop-up books?
