My Review

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

Bubbles is a short picture book for children about a frog who is named Bubbles for a reason. No matter what he eats, he can’t stop bubbling the water and making the pond stink.

The pictures are simple but colorful and cute. The story is also cute and I think children, especially boys, would get a kick out of a frog having trouble with making bubbles.

Bubbles uses humor to teach children how to deal with embarrassing situations as well as about self-respect. It is definitely a good book for young children.
