Press Here – Book Review

As a series of commands are presented on each page, this unique book allows children to use their imaginations.

Starting with a single yellow dot, the reader creates more dots, changes colors, increases sizes, shifts the dots from left to right, shakes the dots all over the pages, and even turns the “lights” off.

Although a one-dimensional book, it is completely interactive from start to finish.

Press Here is written and illustrated by French author Hervé Tullet.  Don’t let the cover fool you; Tullet’s simplicity creates such wonder and imagination.  Your child will want to read it over and over again.

  1. Another one we will be checking out :). All the books you have suggested are right on the money and capture the little ones attention. Thanks Oster’s mom, I hope he is feeling much better.

    • I’m so glad you like the book suggestions.
      It’s almost time to return Press Here to the library. I think I am going to have to buy this book. Oster cannot get enough of it.

      Yes, he’s feeling better. Thanks. His appetite has been increasing each day, which isn’t’ so bad considering he is a good eater at each meal anyway.

    • Let me know how you like it. Oster looks for this book right when he wakes up so I’m pretty sure I’ll be buying it this weekend because I have to return it to the library soon.

    • On Tullet’s site, there’s a video of a child reciting the book en français. I think it maybe titled Un Livre. It is a simple book to learn basic English. A fun way to learn too!
