Book Review: Tap the Magic Tree

December 10, 2013

Tap the Magic Tree by Christie Matheson
From Miss Abby at Madison

“There is magic in every tree. The tall, silent one in the woods. The small, bumpy one in the park. Even the bare brown tree in your backyard. As the seasons change, trees change, too. They sprout leaves. The leaves change color. Sometimes flowers bloom. Sometimes apples grow. Trees shelter birds and feed squirrels and bees. There is magic in every tree. And in this book, you become the magician. How? Tap, clap, wiggle, jiggle, and then . . . turn the page.”

Tap the Magic Tree is full of easy educational uses! This fun rhyming book will have children learning about seasons and practicing following directions all while having fun reading! It would also be a great way to teach about cause and effect as the children’s actions are the “cause” for the tree growing and the “effects” can be seen on the next page. This book could also be used to make predictions as to what will have changed on the next page. Children will want to read this book again and again, and parents will want to, too!
