Sometimes Chronicle books sends me children's picture books for review. My youngest is 7, so we're a bit beyond that at my house. I have a friend at work with two little boys, so often times I'll pass them on to her.
I passed along Mix it Up, and she shared with me how much her youngest loves it.
He is almost two years old - and he loves this book! He loves how you "press" the parts of the book - or swirl, slide etc, and on the next page all the colors look like they've been changed. She said he brings it to her and wants to read it over and over. It is a super cute book, and I could see how little kids would love it, because they would think they are helping the paint move around the book. It almost makes me wish I had a little one to read it with. Well maybe not :)
About the book
Accept Hervé Tullet's irresistible invitation to mix it up in a dazzling adventure of whimsy and wonder. Follow the artist's simple instructions, and suddenly colors appear, mix, splatter, and vanish in a world powered only by the reader's imagination. Tullet—who joins such greats as Eric Carle and Leo Lionni as a master of his craft—sets readers on an extraordinary interactive journey all within the printed page. Tullet prompts plenty of giggles in addition to a profound understanding of colors, and once again displays his unique genius and vision in a work that is a glorious and richly satisfying companion to Press Here.
