children's pop-up books: neo-liberalism

Two intriguing forms of children's literature come in the form of "choose your own adventure books" (stories that allow the reader to skip pages to choose between two different decision paths that yield two different outcomes) and "pop up books" (storybooks that include various cut-out paper folds that literally pop up into three-dimensional imaginative scenario sets).

The recent Hollywood (USA) popularity of high-definition IMAX 3D movies (movies that present avatars and characters in special three-dimensional format) suggest that society is more and more interested by user-friendly and interactive entertainment experiences.

This new trend in entertainment is affecting culture and education and is informing a new age appreciation of interactive technologies in education and a socially integrative celebration of tactile-hybrid franchises such as the Planet Hollywood restaurant chain.

This makes visually interactive children's pop-up books a special stimulating option in schools and American bookstores.

Do these cultural considerations reflect the psychological appeal of technology-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Network" (1976)?

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
