These are so GREAT!!! I've read them to my children many times. Do you think that could be the problem?

i have a dumb question: does the "+" after the title mean that one is borrowing from someone else's creation when one is too "busy" to create their own original post? :)

Actually, there's a great anatomy "Pop-up" book of sorts that was published in 1619. You can go to this link to see a quick photo of one of the pages:
