I am in the process of picking a book to read at my school's annual Kids' Night Out reading event, which is essentially a story walk, just in the evening. I had this one on my reading list and decided to check it out. While it is not going to work for that event, it did really interest my 5 year-old, so it was a win! The book has directions that have you touch, rub, shake, and blow on the book and the dots in the book. He was so into it; he was laughing as the dots expanded, multiplied, and changed colors. It is more of a one-on-one read (not good for a group), and it would interest the preschool to 1st grade age group, I think. We had a good time, and my 2nd grader was giggling, watching his little brother enjoy himself.
