Update: we gave one to our 1yr old niece on Sat and she loved it! She walked around with the book asking everyone to read it to her. She had the story read to her about 4 times, even with a bunch of new toys, she picked this book. Every adult took a turn reading it too! Kid approved!
(Pictures not necessarily in exact order - wanted to give a general idea of the story)
The book opens with an illustration of a stark tree. “There’s magic in this bare brown tree. Tap it once. Turn the page to see.” Turn the page and a single, bright green leaf hangs off one of the tree’s branches. This gentle book continues to ask its readers to perform several actions: rub, touch, jiggle, wiggle, brush and “blow the tree a tiny kiss.” With each action and page turn comes some magic – the tree forms buds and blooms flowers, the apples grow and plop down, the leaves turn colors, and the snow falls on the once-again bare tree.
On the second-to-last page, a bird’s nest containing a single blue egg is nestled in the bare tree’s branches, a preview that spring is coming once again. “Close your eyes and count to ten,” the book requests. On the final page the sweet baby bird has hatched and two bright green leaves have grown: “Magic! It begins again.”
This book was a godsend during New England’s more-bitter-than-usual 2013-2014 winter. My children would ask me to read it again and again, as there is something soothing – and magical – about its simplicity. This is equally true of the simple act of cuddling up with your children to read, which can serve as a magical balm for the winter blues.

My two year old asks me to read it over and over. It is a wonderful book and must have for every toddler inhabited household!
