Meet Larry. This is his book. Theres only one rule in this book: dont push the button. The big, red, all-too-inviting button. When the temptation gets too much and the button is pushed, things get a little crazy. Getting everything back to normal is not easy but would it be such a bad thing to press the button again?
Dont Push the Button
is the debut picture book from American author/illustrator Bill Cotter. Aimed at and ideal for
pre-school aged kids, this is a playful and fun book.
The storyline itself is pretty simple and the illustrations, although bright and colourful are also not excessive. The novelty comes with the way the reader is invited into the story and to interact with the book; not with tabs or textures but with the actual book shaking it, pressing the illustrated button. It is a great way to engage young children, making them and the book itself an active part of telling the story. The board format will also ensure that it is robust enough for energetic young hands.
