Children’s Book Highlight: Press Here by Herve Tullet

April 2nd, 2011 by Debbie's World of Books

I normally don’t review children’s books here and instead write about them on my other blog, Munchkin’s Book Journey, but I loved this one so much and it has been such a hit with my 3 year old that I wanted to high light it here as well

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 a few days ago.  We read it for the first time the other night 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 the next day.  We read it the next night  2 more times with her screaming again, again!  Then we read it again the next night and again she wanted to read it over and over.  I’m sure you are getting the picture of how much fun she has with this book.

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 and has become one of my favorites as well.  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.
