Tap the Magic Tree

I’ve learned that toddlers love, love, love to help.

When it’s time to unload the dishwasher…

“I need a big helper!”

In runs excited B, shouting, “Hel! Hel!” (precisely my thought when it’s time to unload the dishwasher) and the task is complete in no time.

So, it comes as no surprise that when I say, “Tap the tree,” or “Shake the tree,” she immediately complies. She love, love, loves to help the magic tree grow flowers and to help its apples plop to the ground. How can a kid resist tapping, brushing, jiggling, shaking, or knocking on a book (reminds you of Don’t Push the Button! doesn’t it?) magictree3 (3)In Tap the Magic Tree, your little one is in charge of changing the tree through all four seasons. From touching the buds to make beautiful blossoms, to gently patting the crispy leaves to make bright fall colors. They’ll clap to make snow, and then it’s all over.

Not! Right when your little one thinks nothing else will happen to the tree, they are told to be patient, count to 10 (with your help, of course,) and suddenly– spring has sprung and with it, bright green leaves for them to tap, tap, tap.

Christie Matheson has a similar books– one being Touch the Brightest Star, that looks adorable for bedtime.

    This series of books is very fun for littles ones. They get to see the impact of their actions!

      A very nice thing for them to learn! I have my eye on the others. 😊
