An Interactive Book

bookcover
Author: Christie Matheson

This book would be a great interactive activity for parents and children and/or caregivers. It would also make a great storytime read for libraries offering preschool programs. "Tap the tree" the readers are instructed and see what happens when you turn the page. What happens is that the tree goes through the seasons of a year and at the end of the book, begins again. Children will love the instructions - "blow the tree a tiny kiss", "brush away the petals (swish)" and will learn how trees survive all the days of the year.
