Young Reader Reaction

I fully expected to hear "this is a baby book," but I did not. My preteen spent hours with this book. She wasn't as interested in looking for the red dot as she was playing with the pages and figuring out how they were constructed.

Parent Reaction

This is a wonderful book for exploring with a young child. Where other books let you ask questions about what's happening on the page, with One Red Dot the kids can play with the book to find the answer.

Type of Book:
This is an interactive pop-up book that is part counting book, part seek and find.
Educational Themes:

From exploring shapes and colors, to counting, this book lends itself to multiple educational uses. Turning the pages and playing with the levers is helpful. That develops fine motor skills. The text is simple and repetitive, making it a nice early reader choice. For older kids incorporate the book in discussions of modern art.

Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:

Purchase Recommendation:
Buy. This isn't as much a story as a book for exploring. It will have different value at different ages and will STILL be enjoyable.
