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.

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.
