Perfect for `reading aloud' practice, the stories in  Bubble and Squeak   are based on traditional fables. Each is written as a mini-play, with two characters and two distinct voices, one for a new or reluctant reader, the other for an adult or a more advanced child.

The four stories are short, sharp and funny, and graded to allow for a child's progress. The first two stories can each be read in one sitting, but the third and fourth introduce small chapters which end on cliff-hangers to keep children engaged. In all four stories, the co-reader's role has more complex words and structures. As children grow confident, they often ask to read a story again, switching roles to play the more challenging part.

Kids love to act. In  Bubble and Squeak   they can be a wicked fox or a crafty cockerel, a grumpy lion or a squeaky mouse. Reading their part aloud, they forget they are being tested. Brightly coloured illustrations add talking points to stimulate their imagination, and the co-reader shares the fun.
 

 Bubble and Squeak   is the first in the PLAY YOUR PART series, crafted to introduce young readers to language which increases in variety and stimulus. Playing a part, children will soon learn to love books and to ask for more.

5 stars
I enjoyed reading this book. I liked to give the two characters to my toys and then do a play with them as Bubble and Squeak. It's fun to read and the stories are quite short, so they keep me interested. I think that my friends would enjoy this book and maybe children who like mice and acting.
