“Tap that gray spot. Just a little, to see what happens.”
- Mix It Up by Herve Tullet
From the creator of the New York Times Bestseller - Press Here, Herve Tullet brings us Mix It Up. Known as ‘The Prince of pre-school’ books’ in France, Herve Tullet has an uncanny ability to bring interactivity one can only get from devices to traditional books. Definitely one to get the children’s attention away from modern day devices.
What is this book about?
An interactively book about colours and how children can mix it up, manipulate it and even spill it! Well, almost..
Herve Tullet brings his magic of whimsy and wonder to yet another one of his children's book. Both parents and children are encouraged to use their imagination and you wouldn't think that this can be done on a printed book.
We love it because...
It’s mess free!!!
Children love paint and the mess that go with it. It's all part and parcel of their development. This book lets them play with ‘paint’ without all the scrubbing and cleaning that mommies and daddies have to deal with after.
Put the fun aside (though that’s the best part), Mix It Up introduces your little ones to colours and even if your child is already familiar with them, this book helps teach them how mixing certain colours can cause them to transform into different colours. With a step by step guide and with a touch of a finger, watch what happens when you press down on the book? Or tilt it sideways?
