      Hi Melissa:
      They are available already made, as well as the story cards. Take a look on line and you can find it. It’s a very interesting way to tell a story…much easier to tell one where you don’t have to hold the book and tell.

      Thanks for stopping by.

    This sounds utterly riveting; it is one thing to tell a story well on the page; it is another thing to present it to an audience — though I suppose the story must first of all be tightly written

      Hi John. A really good storyteller can make (almost) anything really riveting, and a bad one can take the most tightly written book and put an audience to sleep or want to text while they are boring them. If you go to any library you’ll find a Story Hour, where the librarian reads from a picture book. The material mentioned in this article are on the next level up.

      What’s funny is I just realized something: I don’t think I’ve ever seen a librarian or elementary teacher use a Pop Up book to read a story to the kids. Anyone has? If so…which ones?

    Sounds like fun! I think it’s interesting how different cultures add something unique to the art of storytelling.

    It all started with caves and fire and the hunt. Went from there, and stories traveled. I wish I could get the video to work. I’ll figure it out so I can post about 3 mins of the event.
