a book with magical buttons

Chronicle Books' Press Here Interactive Children's Picture Book by Herve Tullet

Innovative. The word makes me a little giddy. It’s my favorite thing to find. It’s even headier when combined with another favorite thing: a book. Press Here by Hervé Tullet ($14.99) is both of those things in their simplest forms. It’s like he’s poking fun at our current dilemna: Nook, Kindle, or iPad? Forget the ebooks, Press Here is interactive too. Each page asks you to do a simple task, and when you turn the page – you’ve magically pushed the buttons that create a new reaction. It’s pretty neat-o, and the kids in the suh-weet video below prove the point.

Stop by Chronicle Books’ Press Here website to get some great printable, downloadable freebies (scroll down, you can make your own mini book!) And on an unrelated but equally cool note, make sure you enter this week’s Furry Pod Chair Giveaway!

Isn’t it great to find books that push the envelope? I love it too!

This book is amazing
perfect for preschoolers they love it
I havent had such an excited response from parents/teachers and directors in a long long time
Everyone wants a copy as I do myself ( mine was borrowed from a friend and reluctantly returned!)
Am in Sydney Aust and am finding it really hard to purchase my own copy
Can anyone help
