The White House Pop-Up Book Takes You Inside the Executive Mansion

Pop-up books can do everything from doubling as a camera or planetarium to giving you nightmares, and now there's one that can take you on a tour of the White House.

Scholastic has unveiled the book trailer for Robert Sabuda’s latest work, The White House: A Pop-Up of Our Nation’s Home. The video embedded below shows you a pop-up of the exterior, the Lincoln bedroom, the Oval Office, and it explains how Sabuda develops each pop-up in the book.

The book can be bought from Amazon or Scholastic, where it lists for $21.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. From Scholastic:

    Readers can travel behind the scenes of the office of the executive branch and the residence of the president and his family. Travel through time as and discover the North Face of the White House, the East Room, the Lincoln Bedroom, the Rose Garden, the Oval Office, and the South Lawn of the White House. The text includes the poem “Inauguration Day” by Richard Watson Gilder, adapted by Robert Sabuda.

    While this sounds like it could be interesting, I hope there’s more to it than that.  There just isn’t enough there for me to spend $20.
