Books | 2 clever books for the little ones

French illustrator Hervé Tullet’s (fun website) childrens book Press Here is truly wonderful – it is both clever and simple – a very difficult combination to get just right. Not only that it is fun and charming too. It uses dots in basic colours to both amuse and draw children in by encouraging interaction – the dots grow and shrink and move on the page as the reader follows the instructions. Both my (8+10year old) children were amused by this book, and I know that younger kids will love it too. It is available via Chronicle in the US and Allen & Unwin in Australia.

10 Bush Babies by Susan Hall and Naomi Zouwer is a National Library of Australia Publication. This early learning counting book has some lovely interactive elements, and facts about the 10 Australian bush animals that are featured. But along with the clever activity side of the book, the illustrations are just beautiful. Available October 2011 here.

Thank you so much for these recommendations! 10 Bush Babies is now officially on the Christmas list for my niece (it is apparently not being released until 1 November or I’d be getting it for her October birthday).
