Press Here is an interactive book that allows the reader and child to be more engaged with one another. With every turn of the page, the book just becomes more fun. This book allows children to recognize colors, count, and perform other demands such as clapping, tapping, and shaking of the book. The book starts off as one yellow dot, and the author has the reader do multiple things such as pressing on the dot to make it multiply, change colors and making the dot get bigger. By the end of the book it is back to just one yellow dot.

I thought this book was very cute and very fun to read. I loved this book ever since the very first time I had heard it. It allows children to interact with the book and the reader. Who knew such a simple plain book would be so amazing?

Extension Idea 1: Dot Art. Very simple. Just take paint, they also make dot art paint, and you make dots all over a white piece paper.

Extension Idea 2: Marble Time. First, just have your child experiment with the marbles and the tray. Tilting the tray causes all kinds of action that can actually be a little tricky to control. Then you could add toilet paper rolls and tape them inside the tray. Then you would put marbles inside the tray and have them try to make the marbles fall down through the toilet paper rolls.

This is a good book for young children. It is also interactive and the students will participate throughout the entire story. ( )

Press Here is a book devoted to the idea of following instructions (like "press here" on a painted dot) and finding out what happens. The art visual adventure is contained within the pages of the book, and the story is nothing more than a series of simple instructions given to the reader that allows them to interact and "create" the image on the next page. The visuals are really enticing in all primary hand crafted splotches. I am so drawn to the idea of kids interacting with a book where they feel they are making the image appear on the next page based on their actions, and I would love to have this book in a classroom as an option for silent reading time or free time so they could laugh and be loud while reading it, too.

I would use this with infants and toddlers and teach them fine motor skills with this book and how to follow directions.

This book is a great book for beginner readers who can follow along and press the dots on each page. Its a super simple picture book for children. ( )
