This morning I read Don't Push the Button by Bill Cotter. It reminded me of the Pigeon books by Mo Willems because the main character, Larry, addresses the readers directly. He cautions them not to push the button. Then he realizes that no one is watching and just can't resist letting readers try it out. Even though the button is just an illustration and not an actual button, young readers will enjoy pushing it and seeing the results on the next page.
The book is funny, engaging, and an easy read. It could be used for a quick lesson on the basics of cause and effect, talking about how actions have consequences. It is also a good choice for an older brother or sister to read to a younger sibling.
I read an e-book version provided by the publisher through NetGalley. The book will be released in stores on November 1, 2013.
