Press Here: 12/08/12

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)Press Here by Hervé Tullet was originally published as Un Livre. It gives children the fun of a book app without the need for hardware or software. All the interactivity is built right into the pages of this clever and entertaining book.

The book begins with simple instructions: press the yellow dot. A turn of the page results in two dots and more instructions. Each action results in changes on the next page and further things to do.

Press Here is one of the most entertaining books I've read with my children in a long time. We all took turns following the instructions and by the time we were done with the book we were laughing hard.

There's also now a book app version of the book but I haven't tried it. The book by itself is so perfect... I just don't see the need to do the electronic version.

Five stars
