Readathon: Hour 18: Bubble Homes and Fish Farts
Bubble Homes and Fish Farts by Fiona Bayrock
"Bubbles are soft and squishy and full of air. They shimmer. They float. And they are very handy. Animals make bubbles, ride bubbles, breathe bubbles, and even live in bubbles. Animals use bubbles in amazing ways."
Each two page spread tells about another way an animal uses bubbles. There is a paragraph full of fascinating text and an overblown picture to help explain the difficult parts, with a speech bubble (of course!) to add a little more information.
The back of the book has additional facts about bubble makers along with a glossary and a list of acknowledgments to those who helped the author in writing the book.
