An interactive book that would be good for storytelling sessions ( )

My four-year-old adores this book beyond belief. We keep borrowing it from the library, but might need our own copy. ( )

Miss Lauren (Lauren B) read this at storytime for 3-5-year-olds; she'd requested a library copy for everyone, which was brilliant. Interactivity is encouraged as the tree goes through its seasonal changes. See also: Mix It Up by Herve Tullet


Re-read May 2019: Copied Lauren's idea and used it at storytime, with copies for everyone. Success! ( )

After reading this at three different story times, for three different age groups, I'm increasing my original 4 star rating to a 5 stars. All the kids were enthralled, even the squirmiest ones. This book is read aloud gold. ( )

Hello Everyone,

If you loved PRESS HERE... you know..the book where you press on the dots and shake the book to make things change...you are going to be delighted to know that another author has grabbed on to the same concept BUT used it in combination with the wonder and beauty of....nature!!!

Aha!!! Yes, this is all about discovery and magical powers... yours!!! And the magic all around you. The book captures you from the first turn of the page where you see a bare, gray/brown tree standing patiently waiting for you. Tap it. Go ahead. Just once. Give it a tap. What happens? Turn the page and you'll see what happens. I'm not going to tell you because you'll want to have the experience all for yourself.

Looks to me as though it's done in a combination of paint and collage and it delivers a load of fun and an eye-opening connection to the greatness of nature. Yes, there's magic in this book and there's magic outside in the great, wild outdoors. It can all begin with a single tap and a single tree.

Perfect book to begin a unit on trees, nature, habitats, cycles of the seasons, using your imagination, art.... and on and on. Just plain old fun!!!

Let it begin!!!
