Book review: 'Say Zoop!' a joyfully noisy book for toddlers

Parents need to know that Herve Tullet ("Press Here") gives fresh life to his playful, brightly colored dots in "Say Zoop!," a highly interactive book that encourages readers to experiment with sound as they explore color, rhythm, patterns, emotions, and more. Invitations to press, shake, whisper, roar, and sing erase the boundary between books and games. It's tremendously fun to enjoy together, but far too energetic for bedtime! Simple prompts guide readers through the book, leaving plenty of room for grown-ups and children to extend the experience with their own ideas.
