Tap to Play! review


Tap to play!
Blip has to reach the bar to win his game--but he needs your help. If he wins, he gets a surprise!  Bounce Blip, shake Blip, tilt him and tickle him! Help Blip win the game in this spirited interactive picture book, perfect for reading--and playing--again and again!
(goodreads summary)

Before Blip can win a special surprise, children will have to help him reach the bar before the time runs out.  They need to shake, tilt, tap and flap in order for him to reach his goal. The character is cute and looks friendly. Because of its' simplicity though, this probably would be better for preschool age kids. The large and bold text would work well as a read-aloud for a small group.  Many feel that this is too similar to other interactive books and were not impressed with it. I agree that it is somewhat generic but I guess I am all for whatever gets kids moving or shaking. This book makes for a quick movement activity and a little fun to break up the day! In the end, they could even try other ideas for movement they think might work just as well.  I think this is a "just right book" for ages 3-4.~
