In the book Bubbles it describes the effect of the wind on bubbles blown by a child. Zany illustrations emphasise the humour in the story and encourage discussion. This book supports the comprehension strategies of using prior knowledge, making and confirming predictions, inferring, and evaluating. It provides opportunities for recognising high-frequency words and for practising directionality and one-to-one word matching. The repetition and close picture-text match provides support for new readers. Text features – the high-frequency words – my, on, the, they, to, up – the repeated initial consonant -b – birds, blew, bubbles; -d – dog, down – the upper-case and lower-case forms of t, b, p – the “o” sound in over – the use of repetition for effect – the irregular verb – blew – the use of onomatopoeia – pop! – the use of an exclamation mark for emphasis – the humorous ending – the unusual style of the illustrations
