I have to open this review by saying, this is one of the most colorful books I have ever seen. Bubble Tubbie is designed for young children by Epiphany Schwartz. With verse on every page Bubble Tubbie is bound to become a child's favorite book.
I received the padded hardcover copy of Bubble Tubbie. The pages are shiny and colorful and easy to wipe clean! Just look at the pictures below. When large or uncommon words are used, you can find some definitions along the edge of the page. Words like: beckon or orbs will be explained for your child.
Bubble Tubbie is the first children's picture book to be produced in three distinct formats simultaneously: hardcover, translucent plastic waterproof bathtub book, and interactive book app for iPad. Are you ready? Alrighty then, HOP IN THE TUBBIE! The hardcover version of Bubble Tubbie has been designed to ignite the senses. The shiny, white, padded cover is substantial, and includes a peek of the images that you will find inside. Each brightly colored page is loaded with original art and photographic images. The author's poetry is magically light hearted and fun, and includes many sensory cue words, vocabulary words and definitions. Special care was taken in the printing process to create something of great quality that also makes it stand up well to little hands! Also included are two full pages of vinyl stickers that can be stuck and re-stuck on the pages, the cover, and especially the bathtub.
I am going to a baby shower soon, and I am thinking of taking Bubble Tubbie as a gift!
