Tap the Magic Tree, Board book Book


The acclaimed interactive picture book about the changing seasons. "Like Herve Tullet's Press Here, Matheson's Tap the Magic Tree proves you don't need apps for interactivity," praised the New York Times.

This board book edition is perfect for little hands.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.

Innovative and timeless, Tap the Magic Tree asks you to help one lonely tree change with the seasons.

Now that's interactive-and magical!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.

Pat, clap, wiggle, jiggle, and see blossoms bloom, apples grow, and the leaves swirl away with the autumn breeze.

The collage-and-watercolor art evokes the bright simplicity of Lois Ehlert and Eric Carle and the interactive concept will delight fans of Pat the Bunny.

Combining a playful spirit and a sense of wonder about nature, Christie Matheson has created a new modern classic that is a winner in every season-and every story time!And don't miss the follow-up, Touch the Brightest Star!
