The story revolves around a Puppy who one day sees a bubble that disappears and Puppy is off to find it - it is not with his daddy or his mama or his nana - but then Puppy encounters many bubbles and upon biting one it pops and so he tries another and it also pops until there are no more bubbles. Where did all the bubbles go? In Erica’s creative way she offers a fun way to read to little ones while promoting babbling, early words and language skills. It provides over 90 examples of some of the earliest developing sounds in their most common word positions including "p", "b", "m", "n", "d" and "h". At first glace it seems the book is just a cute simple story, but when read to a child ages 0 – 3 it offers the opportunity to show words such as pop, bubble, mama, nana, daddy and happy in the atmosphere of an adventure in which youngsters can participate and learn!
The story itself is a fine little idea, a very fine lesson in phonetics and speech therapy that introduces a whole new level of importance to children’s books! Grady Harp, March 17
As for the story itself, I felt it was really cute, age appropriate, and engaging for the audience in mind. The illustrations are simple, but it works for this particular book. This could be a really fun book to read with kids and then have your own "bubble party" afterwards! I can easily see this becoming a favorite tale that kids will ask to hear over and over again. Luckily, they will be getting an educational edge from enjoying it, which is a big plus for teachers, librarians, and parents as well!
