The Button Book

The Button Book is a fun and engaging activity book for the youngest readers. Due out 14th Jan 2020 from Penguin Random House on their Tundra imprint, it's 32 pages and will be available in hardcover format.

This is an interactive story activity book with a group of animal friends pushing a different colored button on each 2-page spread. There's a hugging button, a tickle button, a singing button, a *thbbbpppt* raspberry button, etc. I can see this becoming a perennial favorite activity book. I don't imagine it would make a good bedtime book with all the raspberrying and tickling and bouncing, but it definitely would make a fun activity at other reading times.

The art is colorful, simple, energetic, and whimsical. The text is very easy to follow and fun. There are fun 'hidden' buttons in the book also, inviting a closer look for readers. The typesetting in Sassoon infant font is bouncy and easy to read.

This is a fun book. Not a bedtime read, but a fun book nonetheless. Four stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
