Go To Page button to link to document within a Book?

I bet the answer to this question is very simple, but here goes...

 

I'm working with a Book, made up of four InDesign documents. On one of the documents I'm creating Go To Page buttons that I want to link to various pages within the book - however, it seems I can only add page numbers with that particular InDesign doc, as appose to any of the four docs within the book.

 

Is there a 'include pages from book' option somewhere? Or another way to letting me link the button to another page within the book?

 

Thanks,

To add to Jonathan's reply, I'd like to ask why you are doing buttons vs. hyperlinks? I only ask because buttons don't work well with many devices/browsers/pdf readers, whereas hyperlinks work almost anywhere. You can easily make Page hyperlinks and choose the document.
