Tap Magic Tree

A written review by Cathie Sue

Readers take a walk through the seasons of an apple tree in this interactive picture book. When invited to do so by the gently rhyming text kids will pat, tap and blow on the pages. Upon turning the pages kids will discover seasonal changes to the bare tree shown on the first page.

The focus is on the single tree and its changes over time. This is a nice lesson in the concept of things happening one after another. High school art teachers take note: there’s a lot to learn from these simple illustrations. If you and your kids enjoyed Hervé Tullet’s Press Here you’ll want to own this one as well.
