Press the yellow button. Go on, press it! It will take you into an imaginary world full of whimsy and color. A fascinating concept book, Press Here takes the reader on a journey page by page.
Writers Workshop: Read aloud this book and discuss how the author created an interactive reading experience using simple written directions. Discuss how the pictures change from page to page depending on what the reader does (following directions). As a class, choose a similar activity as press here to use as a stimulus for a shared writing piece. Using Press Here as a model, have students contribute directions and illustrations to create a class book.
This could be a fun shared writing experience at the beginning of the school year to build community as well!
