When we borrowed this book, it was a larger paper book, but I discovered that this book is also available as a board book in the Windsor/Essex Library if you have this one in mind for younger toddlers!

I checked this book out to see what all the fuss was about. It seems to be very popular.
I don't think it's quite right for my 19 month old. She did push the dots and interact with it a little, so I see how this could potentially be a great book, but I think it is better suited for older children. We will try again between the ages of 2-3.

UPDATE: Recently discovered that the same book is also available as a board book in the Windsor/Essex Libraries. We are careful with library books of course, but if you have a younger toddler like I do, the board book would be a better selection so you don't have to worry about accidentally ripping pages.

I liked the creativity of this book but it wasn't interesting enough to keep the attention of my 20m old - after all it is pages and pages of colourful dots, nothing else. I was looking specifically for interactive books, and there are other more suitable ones for younger toddlers. Would recommend for older toddlers to preschool age.

This is an amazing storytime read! Interactive, colorful, and fun. You'll love it!

One of the best books for story time. Teaches children many skills. One I would definitely purchase to enjoy with your children. Check out the other titles by Tullet!

I was giddy with joy as I was asked to clap, press, tilt, and blow on the pages of this book. "Press Here" is sure to delight children of all ages as well as speak to the inner child in all of us.

This whimsical picture book invites participation and will surely engage toddlers and preschoolers. Kids begin this adventure by following the printed instructions to press the yellow dot and then turn the page to see what happens. A colourful and fun, hands-on experience with no batteries required! Theme - colours

"Press Here" is a book filled with instructions and reactions as the reader follows the instructions. As the book goes on the dots grow in size and change in color. It reminds me of cause and effect. Example: If you shake you will get multiple dots.

"Press Here" is a very simple children's book that allows children to follow instructions as they read through the book and press dots. They are then told to shake the book, tilt it, and clap their hands while they follow along and use their imagination. It is a fun and interactive book, great for early readers.

This book has instructions at the bottom of the page that tell you what to do to the dots. As you do the instructions, the dots grow bigger and there are more of them. It is filled with interactive play that is great for children.

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Aug 21, 2012

You know what kids love? Being told what to do. Seriously, it’s a thrill for them. Take Press Here. From the title onward children are given specific directions like “press the yellow dot again” and “try shaking the book”. For every action the child takes, the book seems to respond with the turn of a page. Dots flit and fly in all directions. Sometimes child readers turn out the lights. Other times the dots grow huge on the page with every clap of the reader. By the time you’ve reached the end all the book has to say is, “want to do it all over again?” and you can bet that every reader in the room, tall or small, will scream out an appreciative “YES!!!” in response.
