Product Description

Review

"Press Here is a tour de force of imagination and playfulness that belongs on every family bookshelf" - Seattle Times"[S]pectacularly simple… .And it's just plain fun. Tullet reminds readers that a child's imagination truly needs only the most basic of instruments to soar high and far." - School Library Journal, Starred Review"Without so much as a single tab to pull or flap to turn, this might be the most interactive picture book of the year." - Booklist"Who needs video games? I guarantee this book will completely engage young readers - and their families as well and the giggles will multiply as fast as the colored dots."
-Bookends, A Booklist Blog"We're reading Press Here [by Herve Tullet]!" -Kelly Rutherford, actress, Gossip Girl"We believe in magic after reading this book… .This could quite possibly give birth to a whole new genre of kid lit." - Babble.com"Utterly captivating." -The Modesto Bee"Tullet's brilliant creation proves that books need not lose out to electronic wizardry; his colorful dots perform every bit as engagingly as any on the screen of an iPad… .The joy is in the tacit agreement between artist and reader that what's happening is magic. Shh! Don't tell." - Publishers Weekly, Starred Review"This is one that will be passed around every classroom, every library and at every gathering of family and friends. Irresistible." - Shelf Awareness"This book is 100% magic, the potent kind that makes an adult ignore cranky knees curled awkwardly on the floor to read (and press and rub and tap.) right to the very end." -Madison Public Library"This brilliantly simple amusement wins its spot (in a manner of speaking, for it consists almost entirely of colorful spots on glossy white backgrounds) for the sheer delight it gives. The book, we said earlier this year, 'is like a cross between a high-concept picture book and an iPhone, only more charming.'" - Wall Street Journal/Best Books of 2011"The iPad generation expects interactive. But books can play too… It's so much fun to pretend that things are actually changing on command. No computer needed! Kids (and adults) are delighted by their perceived power." -Susan Faust, The San Francisco Chronicle"The bottom line: "Press Here" is a tour de force of imagination and playfulness that belongs on every family bookshelf." -Courier & Press"Such a fun, simple book but one that will keep your preschooler enthralled and entertained. … An age-appropriate thought-provoker." -About.com"So clever and so much fun." -Raising Creative and Curious Kids blog"Simple in appearance, genius in execution. An interactive book for interactive times, Press Here will please all comers. A must see." - Travis Jonker, 100ScopeNotes.com"Simple enough to captivate a two-year old, yet brilliant enough to garner the attention of an adult, this book will bring magic into anyone's day who reads it." -Babble.com"Press Here is the ultimate book for engaging very young children and holding their attention." James Patterson's ReadKiddoRead.com"My kids love for me to read this book to them." Kelly Rutherford, actress, Gossip Girl"Kids will love it, because they can challenge themselves, reinforce basic concepts, and just have fun with a book that interacts with them." -Librarians Crossing blog"It's a magic trick that never stops giving. It is, I hope, the start of great new things to come with one of the oldest formats on earth." - Betsy Bird, School Library Journal's A Fuse #8 Production Blog"It takes a low-tech book to remind us of all the fun you can have without a single electronic gadget. " - HuffingtonPost Parents"Irresistible… A cross between a high-concept picture book and an iPhone, only more charming." -The Wall Street Journal"I love Press Here! It would work on so many levels: teaching kids left from right, just as a fun game, using your imagination." -Robin Benoit, Children's Librarian, Fairport Public Library, NY"I have been hearing such good things about this one and I have to say all the rumors are true! Not to say that e-books and apps do not have their place but it is nice to see a real book compete with them and win." -Books Beside My Bed blog"For something to read alongside your young grandchildren, you must check out "Press Here" by Herve Tullet." -Brainerd Dispatch"Compared to the squawking sounds and flashing lights of many toys, Tullet's simplicity is a breath of fresh air… .Children and parents keen to explore technological interactivity will delight in recalling the infinite possibilities of the picture book." - Kirkus Review, Starred Review"Every once and a while a book comes along exemplifying such a rare simultaneous brilliance and simplicity that you cannot believe the world of words ever functioned before its conception. Press Here, written by Henre Tullet and published by Chronicle Books, is one of these titles. " -Acquired Taste blog"Entertaining and intriguing." - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette"Deceptively simple, and endlessly entertaining "
-Kepler's Books and Magazines, Camino Real Menlo Park, CA"At the close of this reading experience, you'll hear the ultimate praise: 'Read it AGAIN!' Hooray for the book!" -Kids Brain blog"

Format: Hardcover
On the first page of "Press Here," one lonely yellow dot sits in the centre of a blank white pate. Underneath reads the simple instructions: "Press here and turn the page." Do so and an adventure begins; each page invites the reader to press, rub, shake, tilt or blow on the dots and, with each turn, the reader sees the consequences of his/her actions. What happens if you tap the dots? How do you make the dots scatter like marbles and how do you contain them again? When the dots nearly float off the top of the page, Tullet suggests what many readers will already have intuited: "Stand the book up straight / to make those dots drop down again."

Compared to the squawks and flashes of so many battery-operated toys, Tullet's simple but interactive book provides a breath of fresh air that will elicit smiles and enthusiasm from every reader. Better read one-on-one than in a group, "Press Here" provides a taste of technological interactivity, no batteries required.

My 3 year old adores this book. It's interactive without being overly gimmicky. He loves to press the dots, shake the book and clap as loud as he can. He would read this every night. Even my 5 and 8 year old think the book is pretty cool.

Overall, it's a reasonably short story but a fun read. The book instructs the reader to perform various actions on each page (rub the dot, press the dot, shake the book, etc.) and the following page shows the 'result' of those actions. It has a humour that young children will appreciate and enjoy.

I was out on an Early Years Practicum, I got this book from the library, it will be a must have for my own collection.
I read it to one little boy on a cozy chair, and I never saw expressions ever as I saw on this child as we read the book.
He was totally enthralled! It's a keeper!

One of the very BEST books for toddlers I have ever seen & I know books! I love it and have a supply in stock to give as baby gifts. An interactive book! Great idea by Tullet! Would love to see more like this one though I don't know how anyone could top this!

This book has a little bit of everything. It can be used to teach directionality, colours, and is fun and interactive! My three year old loved it so much that we would read it several times a day; my six year old loved it equally as much. Great book!

My kids read the French version of this book. It was so good my daughter took the book to school to show her kindergarten teacher. The teacher read it to the class and everyone loved it so much that the school library immediately ordered a copy.

I bought this book on a recommendation and it is fantastic. It is so simple yet so complex. I am a preschool teacher and we call it the "magic book". It is the first book i have seen that it imagination based. Definately worth the money.

We got this book as a gift when our son was born, and have bought it for a few friends with little ones since! Our little guy likes to look at the images now, but I'm sure when he's older he'll get more out of the playful story.
