Don’t Push the Button!

Book Description: There’s only one rule in Larry’s book: don’t push the button. (Seriously, don’t even think about it!)
Even if it does look kind of nice, you must never push the button. Who knows what would happen?
Okay, quick. No one is looking… push the button.
My thoughts: Don’t – well of course, means ‘Do’; and ‘not push buttons’, well, not going to happen. That is exactly what this book expects from its readers – the title makes sure of it, the words tempt us, and the bright, super-cute illustrations seal the deal.
This book is temptation for the littlest readers – the cute little devil that prompts them (and even us) to do all that parents do not want us to do – I am sure looks like Larry.
I can just hear the giggles resulting from reading this book with a room full of little ones and of course, all the pushing (the button, of course), the shaking, the tickling too. This can be a great book to read with a do what ‘Larry-Says’ type of activity for kids for play-time or just about any time! It is a great book for siblings to read together.
My 10 year old’s comments – “Humorous, last picture with all the monsters dancing around, Even though for younger kids, even older kids will enjoy it. Nice book, all in all”
My 7 year old says of the book – “Really fun, love the polka dots and love Larry, and can we push the button?”
Reread Level: 5/5
Reading Level: Up to 7 years (but as I said earlier, everyone has fun reading it!)
