This silly and sweet picture book introduces young children to colors through humor and clever interactive elements. For fans of Hervé Tullet's Press Here.
Here's a button. I wonder what happens when you press it?
Follow a group of animal friends as they discover a collection of mysterious buttons, all of which do different things!
From a blue singing button to a purple tickle button, from a rude sound button to a mysterious white button, there's only one way to find out what they do: press them all! And thankfully, there's even a sleeping button to lull the animals to sleep after a busy day.
A lively introduction to colors and shapes, The Button Book is the perfect interactive book for storytime (and bedtime!).

PRAISE FOR The Button Book:
“More confirmation that children’s book creators are unsung geniuses.” --The New York Times Review of Books
“British writer Nicholls’ simple, silly narrative and Woollvin’s colorfully childlike illustrations result in a fun picture book that incorporates shapes and colors and that can be used at home and in libraries and classrooms. . . . [The book] should have readers and caregivers singing, clapping, and bouncing along.” --Kirkus Reviews
“There’s lots of scope for adult and child pizzazz in pushing the button pictures and acting out the results — clapping, singing, blowing raspberries (sure to be a favourite).” --Toronto Star
