An interactive story that makes you feel like your creating the results on the next page. Press the yellow dot two times.

Press Here is a wonderful participation book that I would incorporate in Kindergarten level class or Special Education for sensory. This book creatively incorporates counting, colors and sensory elements. This would be a great book for a one-on-one segment or a brain break for a child. ( )

What a weird book! This one was very interactive-- which is probably gonna be necessary for books soon, as children play more interactive video games and do less interactive/sensory activities at school and focus primarily on academic achievements.

This is one of the CUTEST kids books ever! I found it by accident at BN and was standing there in the store doing all the actions, trying to contain my laughter. You can't help but smile when you go through this book!

I bought it for my 7 year old for C'mas and he loved it. He got such a kick out of it, and we even caught him "re"-doing it by himself -- it was adorable.

I'm sure the novelty of it will wear off after a while (or maybe not!), but you have to try it at least once. Such an adorable book. ( )

Originally published in France as Un Livre (literally, "A Book"), this innovative picture-book provides young children with a delightfully interactive reading experience. Beginning with a single yellow dot on a white page, as seen on the cover, the narrator instructs the reader to take various actions, each of which leads (or seems to lead) to various changes in the artwork, as they turn the page. Thus the single yellow dot becomes two dots, and one yellow dot turns red. Pressing and rubbing dots, shaking the book, turning the orientation of the pages, clapping the hands - all these contribute to changes in the book...

For such a simple book - no flaps to lift, no pop-ups or moving parts, no textured elements to touch and feel - Press Here is a marvelously involving book, one which prompts the young reader or listener to become physically involved in the reading process. Sometimes minimal is best, and that is certainly the case here, as Hervé Tullet breaks the fourth wall in unexpected and exciting ways. Recommended to anyone looking for interactive meta-fictional picture-books for younger children, toddlers and up. ( )
