Tap the Magic Tree by Christie Matheson is a story about seasons, trees and magic. The story starts with a bare brown tree. Then the author instructs the reader to tap the page to see what happens. As you tap and turn the page, leaves appear on the tree, until the tree is full of bright green leaves. The reader is then instructed to rub the tree and turn the page, and then pretty pink buds appear! As you touch each bud and shake the tree, turn the page and the buds fall off. The book continues with instructions to shake the tree, pat the leaves, blow a breeze, clap your hands, and count to ten. As the reader follows the instructions he or she sees the tree change with the seasons. This is a cute story that is very interactive and fun, and teaches children about the seasons.
