Top customer reviews
Printed on glossy, heavy weight paper, the colors in "Mix it Up!" are vivid and clear. Heavy cardboard front and back covers make the book quite sturdy. I liked that "Mix it Up!" used few words, but conveyed complex information in a form a child could easily understand. Like Tullet's "Press Here", this sequel delighted my grandson and produced expressions of delight as we read and turned the pages to discover what he had done.
While "Press Here" was geared toward younger children of 2-years old and older, "Mix it Up!" seems to appeal to children who are a bit older and ready to comprehend the complexities of color creation. However, I would not hesitate to recommend this book for younger children. If you do not have "Press Here", I definitely recommend purchasing both books for your library or for that of a child you love.
The book is interactive, giving you instructions like, "tap here" or "tilt the book to the right." Then, when you turn the page, the picture changes to reflect the instruction that was given.
I will definitely get this for my other niece, along with his other books!
If you don't own/haven't read 'Press Here' by the same author you should check it out. There a game also but we've never played so I don't know what it's like.
