Every book needs you to turn the pages. But not every book needs you to tap it, shake it, jiggle it, or even blow it a kiss! Tap the Magic Tree, by Christie Matheson, asks you to help one lonely tree change with the seasons.
It begins with a bare, brown tree. But 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. After more patting, clapping, wiggling and jiggling, you’ll see blossoms bloom, apples grow, leaves change color and snowflakes flutter down. Now, that’s magical!
