Press Here by Herve Tullet

Daughter’s age when read: 3.5 yrs old

I was fortunate enough to get a preview of this book when I visited the Chronicle Books office in San Francisco.  I knew my daughter would love it so I pre-ordered it and got it yesterday.  We read it for the first time tonight and it was an instant hit that required reading it 3 times.  I had to put my foot down that it was time for bed and we would read it again tomorrow.  The concept was so cute and it’s great for those kids who love interactive books.  It opens up with a yellow dot and instructions to press on the dot.  When you turn the page you now have two yellow dots.  The whole book has step by step directions to do things like pressing dots, tilting the book, shaking the book and seeing what happens as the dots multiply and move around.  My daughter was amazed that pressing a dot would make them multiply or change color and was giggling the whole time waiting to see what would happen on the next page.  She really got into it as it had you clapping your hands to make the dots grow larger.  There are just so many great things about this book.  It definitely lived up to my expectations and was so much fun to read to my daughter.  I highly suggest this book to everyone with kids.  You can check out this post if you want to see a video with more about the book and kids reactions.
