Synopsis

Tap the Magic Tree by Christie Matheson

One brown tree stands lonely and bare. But when readers open this book, they bring magic with them. Tap the tree once, turn the page, and a 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. Christie Matheson's debut picture book is about the magic of the changing seasons, and the magic of turning a page. It focuses on nature and the seasons, striking watercolor and collage artwork, and interactive elements that are just right for young readers - Tree Magic is the perfect pick for preschool classrooms, story times, and parent-child reading time.
