Book Review: Press Here

Press the yellow dot on the cover of this book, follow the instructions within, and embark upon a magical journey! Each page of this surprising book instructs the reader to press the dots, shake the pages, tilt the book, and who knows what will happen next! Children and adults alike will giggle with delight as the dots multiply, change direction, and grow in size! Especially remarkable because the adventure occurs on the flat surface of the simple, printed page, this unique picture book about the power of imagination and interactivity will provide read-aloud fun for all ages!
Illustration Style: The only illustrations are colored dots of varying size. Little children can follow simple directions such as: "PRESS HERE AND TURN THE PAGE." Rubbing and tapping on different colored dots will help children learn colors. Shaking, tilting, and moving the book to the right moves the dots around the page. Children will enjoy following the different directions and seeing what happens. This is a great interactive book for children!
Activity: Experiment with colors! Talk about the color wheel and discuss that the primary colors are the foundation for all the other colors. By mixing paints, let your your child try combining colors and see what new colors the different combinations make. You can also show your child how to make a color darker or lighter by adding white or black.
