Bubbles…Up!

Jacqueline Davies

A day at the community pool is full of underwater magic; dunking and diving with friends; somersaulting, walking on your hands, and bursting up through the surface like a tortoise.  But when a thunderstorm comes and a little brother ventures too close to the pool’s edge, will our main character be quick enough and brave enough to save the day?

In this energetic read-aloud, the words swim off the pages as the underwater world comes to life through lush, dynamic illustrations and visual poetry.  Journey to an imaginative world where, always and forever, bubbles…rise…UP!
