“Press Here” Book Review and Full Translation

We recently got our hands onto an interactive picture book and have been addicted since! “Press Here” written by Hervé Tullet.

I know it’s not a new book for many but a great book nonetheless.

We got a hard covered paperback copy and the print was lovely. With pages that are a little thicker than the usual paper pack, the book can definitely survive some toddler beating. It also took me a bit of getting used to since I keep thinking I’m flipping two pages stuck together rather than one.

The book is interactive in the sense that it is designed to get the listener moving and maximize interaction between the reader and the listener. Each page has simple image and some instruction, as the listen performs the instruction and the reader flips the page, the picture on the next page “reacts” to the action being performed. This make this book very fun as the listener is able to be more involved. I’ve witnessed this book at play groups and it is even more fun with more children. My daughter at 18 months was having fun, so was the 5 year old at the group. It became a little competition between the children to see who can perform the actions the fastest correctly.

the next page would then show 5 red dots instead of 1, in response to the 5 taps the book requested

So I had to share this book with my readers. We read this book in chinese at home with my daughter, and it is amazing at teaching colours, simple count, directions, and so much more.

some of the pages can be tricky!

不错。摇一摇吧。

很漂亮吧?试试看对着它们吹气…来把黑色吹走。

大力一些吧!

哎呀,有点太大力了。把书立起来让点点下来吧。

搞定咯!太棒了!现在来拍一下手。

哇!拍两下?
