Tap the Magic Tree

Posted on



We used a wonderful new title this week in celebration of Earth Day. Tap the Magic Tree by Christie Matheson takes a tree through the seasons of new growth, buds, fruit, changing of color, and back again.  Each page includes an active movement to engage your toddler in the story.  For example:

There’s magic in this bare brown tree.

Tap it once.

Turn the page to see.

Tap again-

One, two, three, four.

Now tap again, even more!

Rub the tree to make it warm.

Touch each bud and see what forms.

Give the tree a little jiggle.

That’s it.

Now make you fingers winggle.

Brush away the petals (Swish!)

And blow the tree a tiny kiss.

Ms. Mercedes
