Tap the Magic Tree book
#8
Tap the Magic Tree
Written and illustrated by Christie Matheson
board book
Recommend Ages: 4-8
Thoughts from The Goodfather

This is such a fun, interactive book to enjoy with a little reader. The Magic Tree will certainly appear magic to young readers as their tapping, shaking, and patting help the tree move through the new buds of spring, to the crisp apples of summer, and the bright leaves of fall.

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