My mother got my sister a pop-up book every year for Christmas since she was a little girl, my sister is now 40 years old. My mother passed away 6 months ago and I wanted to get my sister a special pop-up book this year. I am so happy that I ordered this book because this is one of the most beautiful pop-up books I have ever seen. The art work is so delicate and has great movement to it. I am sure my sister will absolutely love it and will probably be moved to tears as I was when she reads it. Thank you so much for a beautiful book!

This pop-up is appropriate for all ages. It is truly beautiful and amazing... and one page (of circular cutouts) just bounces and sparkles for several seconds after it is opened. I bought one of these for my 86 year old aunt after I got one for my 12 year old granddaughter and saw how intricate it was. I can hardly wait for her reaction.

Keep in mind that these books sometimes need to be "teased" into submission (to pop up correctly). They are sometimes glued together where they should not be or not glued where they ought to be. I order many of these and find that it is a good idea to go through each one before presenting it as a gift. I purchased six different ones this Christmas and only one was perfect but all the others were perfect with just a little help.

I saw this book before it's release at an industry event and it's stunning. So well made and beautifully designed. I've been waiting for it to come out. I highly recommend it. Great gift item.

My family and I love this book! Snowflakes are brought to life visually and through the beautiful words written by Jennifer Preston Chushcoff. I would recommend this book to everyone! My one year old son loves it and so does my husband and I. It's a keepsake.

I can't do a better job then all of the reviewers who gave this book 5 stars.
I have been an avid collector of pop-ups x 20+ years and this is BY FAR my favorite. It made me gasp when opening and that's hard to do since I have so many pop-ups it takes a LOT to impress me.
This book impressed me with it's artistic quality while also capturing the total whimsy of snowflakes.
If you have ever seen snow as it glistens in the fields then you'd understand the reason for the glitter. The only thing I would have changed would have been to use less glitter and better glue for the glitter to stick.
Otherwise this is is still a 6+ star book in my opinion.

As I volunteer for The Mazza Museum (The world's first and largest museum dedicated to the art from children's picture books.) we see thousands of books on a yearly basis. This book truly attracted the attention of many of us. I ordered my personal copy through you and when it came was thrilled. The best part was when my little granddaughters read it with me. Their eyes just popped and mouths dropped when the snowflakes "came to life". This is a true work of art and I'm so pleased that credit was given to William Bentley.

Snowflakes are surely part of the fantastic in real life, part of the wonder that we can feel, young and old alike. The beautiful craftsmanship in this book recreates a sense of wonder--and awe. It's an amazing gift book.

My 83-year-old mom has her canasta ladies over as well as other widows' group members - and she always likes to have something different on her table, for a conversation piece, if you will....

I bought this for her partly for that, but more so she could read and enjoy the wonders of this book with her great-grandchildren who visit often....

Turns out that this book is for all ages and for any occasion, really!
