VG/E Boisrobert, Anouck and Rigaud, Louis. Popville. Roaring Brook, 2010. 16p. 978-1596435933. 16.99

This little pop-up book illustrates the growth of a new city with each turn of the page. The only words are on the final page, so it’s probably geared to a younger audience. It would be a great book in the classroom for all ages though, because it could generate discussion on many topics regarding city growth, including environmental effects and social issues.
