Wow! This book is great! So rich in language, rhyme, alliteration, cadence, and vocabulary! Margaret Mahy's fun, upbeat poetry is accompanied by Polly Dunbar's whimsical watercolor and cut paper art work. Bubble Trouble is a bright star in the world of read-alouds . . . but practice first!
Master 4 had a great time painting on the bubble wrap (after we had popped lots of other sheets!) using lots of vibrant colours. Turn the bubble wrap over and press down hard, lift it off the paper slowly to reveal a great looking pattern. We have recently been to a Bee show so master 4 was quick to point out that the pattern made by the painted bubble wrap resembles honeycomb! Mmm think this could be leading somewhere....
