A fantastic book to share with a preschooler. We laughed out loud and then had to go and buy the book for our home library.

This was an impulse buy, and it was well worth it! It's fun and silly and interactive. And, of course, toddlers love to do what they're told they shouldn't....
My two year old loves this book.

My 2 preschool grand daughters absolutely LOVE this book!!! Again! Again! Wonderfully interactive!

Interactive picture books are a great way to make reading a fun, playful experience. Readers become part of the story, enjoying the same sense of control that they would have operating a tablet or handheld device.

My 2.5 year old loved this book. We probably read it 5 times in a row the first day we got it! Highly recommend for younger children!

Seriously, don't push the button! This book is a fun read that will have all the little listeners laughing, but be prepared to read the book more than once to them. See how long you can go before you push the button!

This book is a lot of fun and just unpredictable enough that it stays interesting for an adult reader. I love the main character and how interactive he is with both the button and the audience.

A great read-aloud to have little listeners rolling in laughter.

There is a button, but don't push it!

Larry leads us through each step as temptation gets the better of us. With each press, Larry changes in some way, sometimes it's his colour, others, it's his number. This becomes a problem though once the page fills up, so its up to us to fix it. How does one do that, well by shaking the book of course. There is still the matter of the button though...it is just too much fun to push.

The button is always on the opposing page, bright and red and inviting, while the monster's upper half fills the other. Emphasis is given to his very bold expressions, which matches his very funny, emotive speech as he speaks directly to us.

Funny and interactive, Don't Push the Button will fill your house with your children's laughter. Be careful though, they will probably wish to read it again, just to push that button!

"It does look pretty nice though. I wonder what would happen if we pushed it."
