I read up on all the hype on this book and the first book the author wrote. So I followed all and purchased it. I looked at it on my own and really thought it was a waste of my hard earned $$$. So much that I waited several months to actually give it to my son. Gave to him for Christmas and he LOVES this thing. I REALLY can’t figure out why but it is very interactive and the reader can make it more exciting as long as you are animated and you go along with what the book tells you to do. Book is good quality unlike some of the reviews I read. Goes to show you never know what your kids will like. I hate it but love that he LOVES IT. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Have you purchased something fake? Maybe it was a fake purse or maybe it was a copy of a movie. The quality isn''t the same as the real deal and it shows. I feel like I purchased an imitation MIX IT UP book.
The cover isn''t wrapped. I''m pretty sure my sister in laws book was wrapped. That''s where I first saw this genius book. The writing is great and it keeps toddlers attention the entire time, but the quality of the book I was shipped is disappointing.
The pictures I added show how the front and back aren''t wrapped. It was shipped with the pages folded and attached. Someone needs to check the machine they''re using to print. I gets that what you get for 6.00 and not the full15.99 thats listed on the back of the book.
I wish I could return it.

Herve Tullet must be a very vibrant, creative, and fun person to be around. I think he is like the picasso for kids and I mean that in the best ways!! This is our third Herve book we''ve added to our collection (Press Here and The Scribble Book.) We really enjoy the interactive style he uses in his books, to encourage kids to participate in the story as it goes along.

I don''t want to compare Mix it Up to Press Here, but because it''s the same type of book, by the same author, there are some parallels I will comment on.

As a mom what I LOVE about this book is the lack of actual mess. The kids can mix the colors again and again and again... and guess what? We don''t end up with some globby pile of weird brown paint. So that alone makes it very enjoyable for me. Herve''s books have a sense of magic to them- yes the kids know it''s not real paint and they know that the book is pre-printed and they''re not actually doing the "mixing" and smushing of the colors. HOWEVER, it''s vibrant and fun so much that the story comes to life and POOF= "MAGIC!" They are actually mixing and smushing the colors all over the place (everyone from age 1.5 to 7 participates too!) Here''s where I will draw a couple of comparisons- I wish some of the elements below from Press Here were incorporated into Mix It Up.

One of the elements that I love about Press Here, that I found lacking in Mix it Up, was the language. I love in PH how the narration gives feedback and guides the child to the next page/concept/action. This is different from MIU, which has things like "What do you think will happen?" then you turn the page, and it says, "Right!" I prefer the feedback and direction, because it ties the language to the concepts in the book. Now, we end up supplementing and making our own language up as we go, but I assume lots of kids will be reading this to themselves, or maybe to their siblings. It leaves a little to be desired, and doesn''t feel complete.

Similar to the above- PH had a sequence of events- one thing led to another, which led to another, which led to another, and so on. Nothing felt out of place. The only proof of sequence I''m seeing in MIU is the increasing number of faint other-colored fingerprints from previous "mixing" pages. I just feel like a bit more could have been done here to incorporate it all for the kids and really make it as fun and engaging as Herve Tullet''s other stories.

Now something I LOVE about all three of the books is something that MAKES these stories worth their prices to me. These books are DURABLE. Childrens books cannot be flimsy!!! I hate spending money on hardcover books most of the time because they are still made out of cheap quality materials that will eventually separate and die a sad, broken-binding, torn-page book death, stacked up on a shelf waiting for scotch tape surgery. What is the point of having a fun, engaging children''s book that can''t withstand use from its targeted audience??! If the material used to make these books ever changes to the standard hard cover/thin pages, I don''t think we would purchase them anymore. These books are meant to be shaken, smashed, pressed, and very, very actively handled! The author/publishing company/head-hauncho decision-maker made a GREAT choice when choosing the material of these books. PLEASE don''t change it- I know it''s probably not the least expensive option. I try to be smart about our book purchases and try not to spend crazy amounts of money on picture books, but if it came down to it, I''d shell out a couple more dollars just to have this high level of quality.

My only comment about the material is that something is up with the MIU book cover. The corner of the cover was already starting to peel away from the cardboard backing within 3 times of reading this book. Maybe it''s a fluke, because PH never did that and it''s been read (re: thrown around, played with, and adored) by some very active kids. I just glued it back down and let it sit overnight under a heavy book and it was fine.

Overall (and I totally realize I''m rambling here) I like this book and my kids love it. I just figured that since PH is a tough act to follow, I''d add my thoughts about comparing them, because I''m sure some other parents will too. I read it today to a group of kids aged 1.5, 3, 3.5, 5, and 7, and they all crowded around the book and took turns pressing, smashing, blending, mushing, mixing, and even stepping on the pages to make the mixing magic happen. It''s very fun and I do recommend it!

Our 2-year-old absolutely loves this book, we read it multiple times per day, he anticipates the finger actions before each page. Last night, while reading it, he doubled checked his fingers to make sure there wasn’t *really* paint on his hands.

I ordered this book and one other to read to a preschool class. I thought that this book might not hold their attention. I was so wrong. The kids were engaged and interacted with the book. Their responses indicated their feeling this book must have magic powers. It was a rush to see them so excited and all wanting their turn in touching the pages. I offered to lend a book to my preschooler friend and he immediately requested this book. When I left he was rubbing the pages and shaking the book, excited about reading it with his mother. This is a keeper.

This book is much less of a hit in our family compared to Press It. The kids just don''t really love it. It might be because the actions the book asks you to do can be a little confusing. For example it asks to use your finger to dip the color on the left and mix it with the dot on the right. I get the concept but it takes a little imagination for the little ones to understand. I think it''s more confusing than intriguing - it''s just too obvious "yes you''re playing a pretend game, not that you''re actually making anything happen". To little kids, this can be disappointing.

My grandkids are ages 4 to 7, and they all LOVE this book and another one by the author, titled _Press Here_. When I first got these two books, I thought they might be too cheesy for the kids. But from the first time I read them to the kids, they loved them so much that they would ask me to read them over again as soon as I had finished.

They fully involve the kids'' imaginations. The kids know that they''re not actually mixing colors of paint, or that pressing on a colorful dot doesn''t make the dots multiply on the next pages. But the books are so much fun that the kids suspend reality for a moment and thoroughly enjoy the experience. I wish I had had these books when I was a child, so I could kind of know what is running through their minds when I read to them - like I can when I read my favorite childhood book to them (Ferdinand the Bull). I enjoy these books as much as the kids, because I enjoy watching them experience the books, and pretend that they''re mixing colors, and so on. I would love to hear a child development professional explain why these books are so good for them; I can only go by my motherly and grandmotherly instincts. I plan to buy some more books by this author, if they''re as good as these two are.

I didn''t think the author could do it again after the brilliance of "Let''s Play" but he''s back and just as great as he was in the first book! "Mix it Up" is brilliant. You learn how to mix colors in this book without ever having to open a jar of paint. My 3 1/2 year old twins think that they are painting when they wipe their fingers on the red dot and smear them on the blue dot to see that they have created purple! The book is so utterly clever and convincing that by the time we get to the part where we slam the book shut to squish the black and white dots together I am as amazed as the twins are when we open it back up to find grey! It''s beauty is in it''s simple genius- it effortlessly opens up your mind and unlocks your imagination and you can''t help but feel like you are mixing these colors! It''s an incredible book and it should be required in every pre school/kindergarten/first grade class. Maybe even beyond those ages. I''m 38 and end up feeling like I am making orange when I smear the yellow and red dots so the sky is the limit when it comes to what age children can benefit from this amazing book.
