Press Here by Hervé Tullet

Chances are you already watched the Press Here trailer and read multiple blog posts about this highly interactive book. I was not sure how well it would work as a whole group read-aloud but it was a huge success. It might have been this school year's most successful book sharing experience.

I passed out Post-it notes and asked students to respond to the book.



*"A very funny book that makes you think what is going to happen when you do it and very silly."

*"It makes you think about what comes next. And by the way, very funny."

*"A very fun book to entertain yourself with. You don't just read it too--you can also touch stuff too and you have to touch it. I enjoyed it."

*"It makes you try and think what comes next and it is a really funny book."

*I think it's fun because it is almost like you are controlling what the book does."

*I think it is a really cool book because you don't want to put it down and it gets your attention."

*I think it's really fun because it's like real and the dots are like your pet and you could control it."

*"This is a really cool book because it's like it can hear and feel you."

*"This is fun because it's almost like you're controlling everything the book does."

*"I think it's fun because you control what the book does."

*"I think this is cool because you get to watch things change and you think you are controlling it."

Hervé Tullet's website reminds me of Prezi.

Hervé Tullet is known in France as the "prince of pre-school books."

Borrow Press Here from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
