Bubbles is a cute story and a good story too. Small children will enjoy the ‘stink’ part of the story! My 6 year old enjoyed the part where Bubbles made all those stinky bubbles!! Yes, it is a funny and endearing story.
This story is a short one, perfect for a bedtime read. It has a simple language and very pretty illustrations. The pictures are well drawn and give the feel of the story with the ‘bloop’, ‘bloop’ adding to the fun. The story has a very simple premise and helps children understand that there is some good in everything.
Sometimes the things we find bad or ugly help us in our time of trouble. The way Bubbles jumped in to help save his friends is an admirable quality, which we all should emulate.
Overall I found the story fun to read and share with my kid. A simple, good book with valuable lessons for the troublemakers too. Farts can be fun too! That’s what my kid said!!
Read and enjoy!!
