This past Saturday, I was pleasantly surprised to find a book called Press Here by Herve Tullet on the new shelf at our local library. Hmm. The title caught my attention and the book quickly went into the stack of keepers to bring home to my daughters.
Fast forward a few nights. After meeting our nightly two book quota, I tucked them both in and the youngest asked if I could read her Press Here. In my own interest, I started reading it to her and we couldn’t stop until we were finished. The oldest, was practically hanging over the edge of her bunk curious to know what was going on below. I then climbed up to my oldest daughter’s bed and read the book. She declared the book magical and continued to read through it again after I said goodnight.
Very innovative and engaging. This book gets kids intrigued by what comes next in this amazingly simple book. Unique and magical…
