While looking at our new books I came across, “Touch the Brightest Star” by Christie Matheson. She also wrote, “Tap the Magic Tree” and illustrated both books. The illustrations are beautifully blended watercolors that begin in the morning and drift into the night. Each page pulls you into the book as you wave, press, blow, and pat, tap, count to three, swipe, blink, trace, rub, close your eyes, nod and touch the brightest star. What a great book to interact with your children and let their imaginations soar on each and every page.
I enjoyed this book and even though I read it by myself I followed all the directions which made the book so much fun. This book can be enjoyed by young children as well as older children. The interaction that is required just pulls you into the magic of the book.
