Press Here

A week or so ago Mary Lee at A Year of Reading reviewed the book Press Here by Herve Tullet.  I was immediately drawn to the book and the imagining it inspired.  I ordered the book with some Boarders gift cards that needed to be used up and I was more impressed in person.  Each page has a task "causes" a reaction on the next page.  I found myself getting excited to see what would happen to the dots next.  The text is simple but the creativity is powerful.  I can't wait to see my kindergartners faces as the pages change.


  1. Thanks for the tip, Nicole! Just added it to my Amazon cart. I can just picture my first graders reading it with their friends!

  2. Isn't this book so much fun?!?!?

    For my older kids (4th grade) I'm thinking of using it to explore: The power of reading... or Reading Makes Things Happen...

  3. Laura, you will love this book!

    Mary Lee, I love this book! I read it three times immediately. I love that books I introduce in K are used to deepen thinking on through the grade levels. I think picture books are highly underrated for the older kids.

  4. GOTTA HAVE THIS! Love your idea Mary Lee THE Power of Reading- Reading Makes things Happen! So glad I found this and so sorry I messed it before!
