Press Here

Okay, so this one isn't really a "story" with characters and a plot, but it's still really fun.

It starts with a yellow dot (like the one on the cover) and tells you to "press here." As in, press the dot. The dot isn't actually a button; this is pretend. Anyway, on the next page, two dots have appeared, and the book asks you to press one of them again. And so on.

My favorite part is later in the book, when there are lots of different-colored dots all over the page, and the book says, "shake." (Or something like that--we already took the book back to the library, so I can't check what it actually says.) So you shake the book, turn the page, and all the dots are at the bottom of the page.

I always appreciate a creative idea for a children's book. This definitely meets that standard.
