Bubbles: Big Stink in Frog Pond (A Review)

Bubbles - cover  

I recently received this book to review and I really loved reading it to my 2.5 year old daughter. She might not get the message intended just yet, but she loves making the sound effects, and talking about the silly frog that toots in the pond. She loves pointing out all the bubbles and "popping" them. She also loves talking about Bubbles the frog's feelings, and I like that this book allows her to empathize with him. I think this would be better for older children, though! Thanks for reading, here's more information about the book!

    1. My son is only 1, so he hasn't gotten the full "boys and farts" ideaology yet, but he learned yesterday that when he blows on my arm it makes a farting noise. Every time I sit down he comes over and tries to . . . ahem . . . blow bubbles . . . on my arm. Ha!
