review 1: Great fun book which requires reader involvement. We follow a tree through the seasons, and the reader is asked to tap, rub, knock, jiggle, and shake the tree to effect changes…growing leaves, budding flowers, picking apples, making snow fall.

Patient readers will see that spring brings new life as they note that the tree now has a nest and green leaves again. The simple collage illustrations are attractive and fit the story text quite well. less
