Thank you to Disney for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review 

Featuring five spreads with over 30 pop-ups from New York Times best-selling author, artist, and pop-up master Matthew Reinhart, this breathtaking work of art revisits Pixar's impressive history. Like each Pixar movie, each pop contains Easter eggs to other Disney*Pixar films. Disney*Pixar: A Pop-Up Celebration is a vibrant tribute to the beloved canon of Disney*Pixar films and characters.

Be still my Disney/Pixar, fangirl heart! This book is a must have for Disney Pixar fans. It doesn't matter if you're a kid, or a kid at heart. Featuring all of Pixar's beloved classics from Toy Story, all the way through to Coco, this book is like a mini museum of Pixar movies from the beginning, all the way through 2017. It also gives a brief history of Pixar itself. This book will make the perfect gift for that Disney / Pixar fan you're having a hard time buying a gift for. 

We love these pop-ups and the way this book is put together. Each movie is featured with a book cover that when opened, is a pop-up. An added bonus to this book are some of the Pixar shorts. Those too are a walk through Pixar short history, beginning in 1984 and ending in 2017. I will say that while we love this book, and all the pop ups, this isn't a study board book, and the pop ups, and items you can pull down on each page, can by ripped, and will not be suitable for all younger aged children. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
