Unlocking Your Child’s Imagination Through Fun Books

There are many benefits of reading to your children and teaching them to read – one of which is unlocking their imaginations. We love the book Press Here by Herve Tullet. This fun book starts with a yellow dot, but as your child follows the instructions (press the dot, rub the dot, clap) the dot begins to change colors, multiply, move around the page, etc. It’s a wonderful concept that blends a book and iPhone app games only more fun!

We give the book 5 stars! Check it out for yourself by watching the video and then order it on Amazon!

What is your child’s favorite book for unlocking his imagination?

    Studies show that children who have at least 50 books at home by the time they enter kindergarten, have much better literacy skills in school.

    Going beyond words would definitely increase a child’s vocabulary and awareness. Thanks for sharing! :)
