Grandma Bubbles Books

B&H Rating:

Grandma Bubbles books for new readers are some of the best easy reader books out there, in my opinion. When C., my son, was in the early reader book stage we would go to the library to find him books and most of the books there were too hard for him. I'd have to supply him with boring black & white books that didn't really have a story at all - just pictures with words. Needless to say, he really didn't enjoy reading them much and it was kind of a drag until he got past that stage into the more exciting, colorful easy readers.

Marianne McKnight (a.k.a. Grandma bubbles), the author, has filled what I deem to be a gap in children's books with these fun, adorable easy readers that are specifically written for children ages 3 to 6. She has two series available right now- The Kit and Glug series and The Jen and Pam series.

The Kit and Glug series is about a boy named Kit and his best friend (who happens to be a monster) named Glug. The go on all sorts of adventures together. The Jen and Pam series is about two best friends named Jen and Pam. They love princesses, fairies and dress ups. The illustrations in both of these series are delightful and even the earliest reader can follow along with the story line by reading just a few words on each page.

If you're interested you can find and order the books inexpensively on her website - They are well worth it.
