About the Book

The Tippy Tree by Laura Keane

This whimsical adventure follows two children on a nighttime moonlit nature walk where they discover the Tippy Tippy Tree. The tree sings out in a magical rhyming song that teaches the alphabet, shapes, colors, and animals, while lulling children to sleep. The book’s colorful illustrations contain images hidden amongst the branches, serving as a fun picture search to keep little ones engaged while reading.

“My love of nature influenced the outdoor setting of the story and I wanted to encourage young children to interact with the magic of nature and engage their imaginations. The whimsical rhyme theme in this book came to me on a moonlit walk after teaching my kindergartners who love to read rhyming books,” says Keane.

Establishing a good bedtime routine that infuses reading with settling down for bed is an excellent way to prepare children for good sleep habits later in life. This story will inspire the reader as well as the audience until the very end and become a bedtime favorite.


Laura Keane was raised in southern California and currently resides in a small college town there. While earning her Masters of Arts in Education, she discovered a passion for early childhood literacy. Family trips to cozy beach cottages and mountain cabins sparked a lifelong love of nature. This is her first children’s picture book.
