I received a copy of Tap! Tap! Tap! from the publisher for review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
A joyful dance where your hand is the star and the book your stage, from the creator of the international bestsellers, Press Here and Mix It Up!
Ready? Place your hand here. Close your eyes. Concentrate. Hit it! Three times: Tap! Tap! Tap!
In another delightfully interactive book that celebrates colour and movement, Herve Tullet invites children to use their hands to dance on the page.
A gentle glide starts things off, a few little leaps, then big bouncy jumps that grow in complexity and animation, finally building to a crescendo of colour, action and movement!
Once again, Herve proves himself a master entertainer in a book filled with his signature energy, whimsy and sheer fun.
Tap! Tap! Tap! by Hervé Tullet is a gorgeous, interactive picturebook that invites young readers to use their hands to move, dance and leap across the page. The bold, primary colour palette is used to create lines and shape that children can follow with their hands, matching the instructions of the words to the actions that they take. It’s lyrical and a great invitation to play and be joyful. The oversize format of the book allows for large canvas in what is one of the most unique picture books I’ve read in a while.
