This Week's Must-Read: September 4, 2013

Posted September 4, 2013 in Books of the Week

Every once in a while you pick up a new picture book and instantly know it will become a classic. This is how I felt when I discovered TAP THE MAGIC TREE at my local bookstore. With simple text and illustrations, the book introduces the concept of the seasons to young readers. What makes this book special is the interactivity--begging the reader to tap, shake, and blow a kiss to make the tree "magically" change. Young readers will want to read this book over and over to enjoy this interaction, which really does feel a bit magical. I hope this is the beginning of many books from this talented author/illustrator!
