usborne facts books here too - even now that ds is 7 and a proficient reader he chose Ships lift the flap book at bedtime tonight. We also have Romans and London

Another vote for the Usborne fact books. The Space one and the Body one are v popular in this house!

This isn't pop up, but the words and the pictures glow in the dark when you have shone a torch on them www.thebookpeople.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/qs_product_tbp?storeId=10001&catalogId=10051&langId=100&productId=304198&searchTerm=glow

My DS loves pop-up books too and was bought this and this for Christmas.

My DD has the Alice in Wonderland pop up book.

Also have a look at this page on Amazon. We have the top two books and DS has kept going back to them since he was bought them 3 years ago!

I know it's non fiction but my ds loves those usborne Look inside books. Loads of flaps and you can see underground/ dinosaurs/space etc.

The only story flap books we have would be a little baby ish for a 6 yr old.

My ds loved the captain underpants series at 6, no flaps, but written in cartoon style, so not as daunting. And diary of a wimpy kid.

Ds has a distinct preference for non-fiction and has been taking such books to bed to read for a few months now. I would really like him to show as much enthusiasm for stories as he does for information. I read him chapter books at bedtime (Narnia, Enid Blyton etc) but they would be too difficult for him to read alone and I think he finds them too daunting to even try, though he loves listening to them. He has no interest anymore in his old picture books, though he makes an occasional exception for Octonaut books.

He has a book from a charity shop (it's in bed with him now so I can't look at the title or author) about 2 pirates called Nasty Nick and Captain Jolly that he just loves. It is full of flaps, turny things and pop-ups. In terms of the vocabulary and story it is more advanced than similarly interactive stuff we've already got that he loved when he was about 3. I would love to get him some more of the same kind of stuff in the hope that he will read more fiction.

If it is relevant, he is on purple level books, though the non-fiction stuff he reads at home is more advanced than that, and he loves history, pirates and dinosaurs.
