The kids and I are huge fans of the Press Here book by Hervé Tullet. We've borrowed it from the library several times. They love interacting with its fun page prompts and guessing what happens next. It inspires them to use their imagination. I particularly love the simplicity of Tullet's hand-done lettering and bright painterly illustrations.
I recently heard that the author was releasing his new book, Mix it Up. About a week or so after the book's release, we happily found it at the library nestled in the "Hot Off The Press" shelf. Score! (Or should I say...Thumbs up...way up!)
The interaction of this book is just as fun as actually mixing paint...minus the messy hands! However, we do enjoy getting messy and having this book intrigues them to experiment again and again with their own finger-paints! Here's a peek at some of the pages!
There are other Hervé Tullet books the kids and I enjoy like The Eyes Game and The Game of Patterns. As I was researching his work for this blog post, I discovered the Press Here game and Doodle Cook book...I'm intrigued to check those out for the kiddos! Have you played that game or read any of his other books? We'd love to hear!
