Each of these six little board books from Phaidon encourages a kid to interact with the book in a specific way. The Game of Light features patterned die-cut pages to shine a flashlight through and experiment with light and shadow. The Game of Patterns requires observation and concentration as the reader looks for the differences between very similar - but not identical - facing pages. The Game of Let's Go! combines a fuzzy green flocked line with die-cut shapes to create a book that is beautiful ...more

In this board book, you close your eyes and follow a felt path with your finger. As it loops and swirls from page to page, crossing and passing die-cut holes, you can make up the story of where you are going along this magic line. Love!! For tactile fans, this would be very interesting paired with the embossed pictures in The Black Book of Colors.

Another inventive title from the man who brought us Press Here. The Game of Let's Go is a board book that asks its readers to do something completely different - close their eyes. The game, you see, is to follow the fuzzy green line all the way to the last page - no peeking allowed. Readers will delight in the swoops, swirls, and turns the line takes. Die cuts add another layer of craziness. Kids will love this challenge. -TJ

This, like the other Tullet books, is more about the sensory experience than the text. This one requires the reader to close his or her eyes and trace the path of felt with a finger. The reader is supposed to narrate the experience and what it makes him or her think of. That's a nice idea, though I wasn't very good at it despite making numerous attempts. It was still a smart concept and younger readers would definitely enjoy it as a bedtime read. Interesting.

I love this book almost as much as I love Press Here. A fuzzy green line gives readers the sensory cues to develop a story of their very own. I love the way this author uses his creativity to develop storytelling skills in children. PreK-2.

You are supposed to put your finger on the green felt line and follow it BUT with your eyes closed as as your finger travels your mind does too and you weave a magical story.
i can see this working for some people.

I loved following the fuzzy green line through the book by touch. Okay, I peeked a few times.

I liked the tactile game of this book and was impressed by how hard it was when my eyes were closed (view spoiler). And how pretty it was when they were open.
