Esther K. Smith has several books and a web site full of paper projects including pop up cards and making your own books. MAGIC BOOKS AND PAPER TOYS is so wonderful and is two books in one. First, it is meant to be read as a usual book. Then it has to be flipped over and read from the other direction! It has dozens of paper project ideas, pop up book suggestions and illustrations, and craft ideas such as animation. I found this book irresistible and I want to make all the projects. My art teacher daughter-in-law, Siri, lent me a copy of the book. Any art teacher would like a copy, I’m sure. I tried a few of the animation ideas and made a free 10 page PDF printable for children to try, too. My photos follow. This book is just so good for parents who need some fun ideas, teachers, and teens who could follow the directions themselves. Happy reading and project making!
