Tap the Magic Tree by Christie Matheson

Ahh Autumn...well technically it is still summer but it is back to school time--which means Autumn to me.  I hope everyone had a great summer.  It really did seem to go by really quickly.  Here on the East Coast the weather has been up and down but not is a beautiful day with perfect weather.

Enjoy today's book.

Tap the Magic Tree written and illustrated by Christie Matheson is a new book that is sure to become a classic at home and in the classroom.  This is a sweet interactive book that prompts the child to turn the page by tapping or shaking or patting the pages.  I love the soft pallet and the simplicity of the words and illustrations.  A wonderful new book to add to a child's library.

From the book:

There is magic in every tree.
The tall, silent one in the woods.
The small, bumpy one in the park.
Even the bare brown tree in your backyard.
As the seasons change, trees change, too.
They sprout leaves. The leaves change color.
Sometimes flowers bloom. Sometimes apples grow.
Trees shelter birds and feed squirrels and bees.
There is magic in every tree.
And in this book, you become the magician.
Tap, clap, wiggle, jiggle,
and then . . .
turn the page.
