I was initially skeptical of this book that looked like an app, but it was a lot of fun! Would be great to read with just one kid - they could help press, shake, and tilt - but could also be really fun for group storytimes. ( )

"Press Here" is a fantasy that has a set of instructions on each page. Once the yellow dot is pressed on the front cover, the book is opened to display a myriad of situations in which the dot changes or dots are added. When the book is shaken, the dots fall to the side of the next page, or when one dot is pressed rapidly, the lights turn off and the page goes black! This unique book sure to please any young crowd.

If you are in need of an interactive book that will keep your students engaged then look no further than Press Here (2011). I love that the book requires students not only to pay attention, but to participate in the reading. Lastly, the book is a great read aloud as well as a fun book for students to read on their own.

“Press Here” is a book that increases the student’s interaction. I like it because the book is basically like a game. The students read the short sentence at the bottom of the page and then follow that direction. As he or she turns the page there is another direction for them to follow. The dots or pictures multiply as the book carries on, so to the reader, it seems like he is controlling by “pressing” on the items on the page. The pictures are very simple and could be as simple as just a yellow dot on the page. The texts on the pages are very short and surrounded by white space. For example, the first page reads, “Press here and turn the page.” This is really easy and fun book for younger students to read and become interacted with. ( )

I love this book because it engages the reader. I would use this text to teach children how to follow a sequence of instructions. ( )
