Shake The Tree! by Chiara Vignocchi, Paolo Chiarinotti

This Interactive Story Starts With One Hungry Mouse

When a hungry mouse sees a nut in the tree she shakes the tree hoping to cause that tasty morsel to fall.

The book opens vertically to show the little mouse looking up at nut in a very tall tree. She shakes the tree a little to the right and a little to the left. Oops! It's not a nut that falls but a hungry fox who is ready to gobble her up. The frightened mouse scurries up the tree to escape the fox.

And thus begins the story. Each time an animal falls it is a little larger than the animal shaking the tree.

The book's design encourages the child to shake and turn the book since the layout shifts occasionally from vertical to horizontal.

My Thoughts

My Concerns: Nothing
What I Liked Most: This is the perfect book for toddlers. About the time adults (and children) might be getting a little tired of the repetition, it comes to a very cute close.
