Fun with the TOUR de FRANCE: Our July Contest
It’s the World’s Greatest Bike Race
If you are an avid fan who follows the Tour de France with devotion, you will love this book! It’s a pop-up book aimed at adults and older children–beautiful enough to display on your coffee table, but so intriguing, you and your family will find yourselves constantly picking it up to read and re-read! The Pop-Up Tour De France has been created with the endorsement of the Tour de France official organization and covers the Tour’s history, explains the various stages, has a glossary of all the French terms used during the Tour and much more!Reading this book has added to my knowledge of the Tour which helps me enjoy it even more as I follow it over these few weeks! Even my teen girls have been able to immerse themselves in more of the details of the Tour as well and their appreciation for its history has vastly increased (previously, they seemed to just root for the young man they thought was “the cutest one”) as a result of the mini-education they received from this charming book. I thoroughly enjoyed the beautifully illustrated and fun-to-read Pop-Up Tour de France which was written by Pamela Pease and published by Paintbox Press. It can be purchased at major booksellers and Amazon.com as well as the Paintbox Press website.
