Hey anybody want to play? From the creator of "Press Here" and "Mix It Up", Hervé Tullet's brand new creation "Let's Play!" takes you out of the box to discover the emotions and excitement of playing with colour and line. A kid-friendly yellow dot invites you to "Press the top corner to get me started," and you put your finger on the page! Yellow dot is the guide extraordinaire that will encourage your child not to be shy but get involved with the magic that is about to unfold. Fasten your seat belt as you play hide-in-seek in a forest of trees, enter into a dark ominous tunnel, and ssshhhhh!! tip toe up the stairs. You will be energized as you flip, turn, clap and shout za-za-zoommmm! Surprises await as the yellow dot gets animated and bounces right off the page and into your hair! Oh my! Delightful! The yellow dot teaches your child to STOP at a red light, and GO at a green light. It introduces your little one to an amazing world of wonder. It speaks to overcoming obstructions, and coming to terms with fears such as being afraid of the dark or being scared of heights. Tullet is a genius when it comes to thinking creatively and making reading come alive. He inserts many playful twists and turns to make the experience fun and unforgettable. "Let's Play!" is non-stop interplay page after page and little ones will be giggling and asking for more. Highly recommended.
This is a happy book! I loved the fun ways it teaches how mixing colors make a new color. The illustrations are great.
