5 Best Interactive Books for Pre-Schoolers

Portrait of beautiful mother with her daughters reading a book at home.

“Mom, what do we do all day?” We moms are overwhelmed every time this question pops up. So, what could probably be one of the best solutions to this? My answer – Interactive Books!  Get your kids some of the best interactive books to feed their inquisitive minds.

As a hands on parent, I introduced my kids to interactive books to inculcate the habit of reading, as they inspire a child’s imagination in magical ways.

The books I’ve chosen require kids to lift, peek, press, fold, search, chatter and most of all, smile.

Here I go with my top picks:

Press Here

Hands down! This is my favorite interactive book for toddlers and preschoolers. Each page asks the child to perform a task, such as pressing a colored dot or blowing on the page. When the page is turned, the landscape has magically changed. This is my go-to book when purchasing a gift for any child aged 1-3.

Children and adults alike will giggle with delight as the dots multiply, change direction, and grow in size!



This fun alphabet book invites kids to interact with it in every possible way. Kids can lift flaps, pull tabs, feel textures, even scratch and sniff. A multi-concept book, over 100 creatures and plants from A to Z hilariously demonstrate action words, synonyms, opposites, and more. Young explorers are challenged to spot four plants or animals that begin with each letter of the alphabet. Twenty-three textures plus foils, flaps, pull tabs, and even a scratch-and-sniff scent add to the interactive surprises on every page. Also includes a removable full-color alphabet poster for learning fun!

This is certainly an amazing ABC safari for Preschoolers!


Mix It Up!

This incredible book is simply irresistible for kids as they follow the artist’s simple instructions, and suddenly colors appear, mix, splatter, and vanish in a world powered only by the kid’s imagination. Each page sets the little munchkins on an extraordinary interactive journey. The whole experience not only prompts plenty of giggles, but also instills profound understanding of colors within kids.


Tap The Magic Tree

A board book about the changing seasons, this is certainly to be added to your kid’s first library. Innovative and timeless, Tap the Magic Tree gives the chance to help one lonely tree change with the seasons.

It begins with a bare brown tree. Tap that tree, turn the page, and one bright green leaf has sprouted! Tap again—one, two, three, four—and four more leaves have grown on the next page. Pat, clap, wiggle, jiggle, and see blossoms bloom, apples grow, and the leaves swirl away with the autumn breeze.

Now that’s interactive—and magical! Isn’t it?


Can You Make a Scary Face?

This is a wonderful book and perfect for story times. A ladybug asks the reader to perform various silly tasks like pretending to swallow a bug, wiggling her nose, standing up, and (you guessed it) making a scary face. By the end, your little one will be bubbling over with laughter and making scary faces of their own. This tops the list when it comes to my kids’ favorite interactive books.


I am delighted with the way my little ones have bonded with these interactive books in innovative, surprising ways!

These are undoubtedly “hands on books for hands on kids!”
