Review: Blueberry-Blue Bubble


Genre: Children's 3-7
Pages: 32
Published: October 18, 2022

A bubblegum blower blows a blue bubble.
But what happens when the bubble gets 
bigger, and bigger and bigger?

Packed with humor, and filled with lively alliterations, this book is sure to have them begging to
hear it again and again!

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review. 

This book is reminiscent of Suess's B book, but about a boy blowing a blueberry bubble. Had I been trying to read it aloud I imagine it would have been quite the tongue twister for me. Thankfully I was just reading it to myself in my head so I didn't get tripped up on all the b's. 

Unlike the B book, not all of the descriptors continued on to further pages (I don't think). Some seemed to be more page specific depending on who/what the boy was telling to look out because the characteristics of the bubble changed based on that info. It got bumpy for a frog for example. 

The illustrations reflected the changes in the bubble's texture quite well, but could easily be missed if you're not paying attention. They were also very blue, as one would expect with a book of this title. 

Overall I give this book 3.9 out of 5 stars. - Katie 

Carrie’s love of children’s books– and the delight they bring– started long ago on a farm near Bradford, IL. The eldest of six children, Carrie grew up reading to her younger siblings.

When she became a mother to her own three sons, Carrie rediscovered the joy she had reading aloud with voices and actions. She also gained a deeper appreciation for how a well-crafted children’s book can induce joy, ignite the imagination, and create a beloved memory.

As a family doctor, Carrie discovered how daily reading is an essential component of child development and well-being. That’s why she supports Reach Out and Read, a nonprofit network of pediatric care providers who provide families, at routine check-ups, with the knowledge and tools they need to make reading a part of their daily routine.
