Purpose of this Blog...

You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls. My goal is to help you find the ones that do!

Saturdays are perfect bubble days, don't you think?

After a yummy breakfast this morning, my visiting grandsons were full of energy and started chasing each other around the house with a couple of kites their grandpa had gotten out of the garage the night before.

But unfortunately this morning there was no wind. Then remembered I had two unopened bottles of bubbles.  That's when the magic began!  What is it about these weightless little orbs that bring so much joy to children?

Bubbles are INSTANT FUN, and so is this book - Bubble Trouble by Margaret Mahy (illustrated by Polly Dunbar).

When little Mabel’s bubble gets away from her, it’s her baby brother who gets into trouble. Soon he’s floating out of the house, above the fence, and all over town! And it’s up to Mabel, Mother, and the rest of the townspeople to get him safely back down. Who knew that so much trouble could come from one little bubble?

If you'd like more bubble book suggestions, you can look at my past post, "The Fun and Science of Bubbles", here.
