Early Reader Review of Bubble Trouble! by Mary Tillworth

Read for: Early Reader Challenge & Munchkin Loves Blaze
Synopsis: "When Crusher mucks up the truck wash by using too much soap, it’s up to Blaze and AJ to fix the messy problem! Boys and girls ages 4 to 6 will love this fun-filled Step 2 Deluxe Step into Reading leveled reader that features their favorite friends from Nickelodeon’s Blaze and the Monster Machines. Plus it features a shiny cover and over 30 shiny stickers! Step 2 Readers use basic vocabulary and short sentences to tell simple stories. For children who recognize familiar words and can sound out new words with help."

My Review: Munchkin is a huge Blaze fan so we pick up just about every book we find. While this is clearly based on the show, I never saw an episode like this particular storyline. I like how for a change Crusher isn't being intentionally cruel or devious but just not listening. This is a great level 2 reader, slightly longer sentences, more text, more difficult words but all held together by a good storyline and favorite characters.
My Rating: This was a great book, it is an appropriate level 2 reader and the storyline was fun, not as much of the science and math as other Blaze books or the show but still a book young fans will really love.  We give this a rating of Four Paws!


  1. I haven't even heard of this show, but it looks fun.

    1. You will have to check it out, it is usually on Nick Jr. it is geared towards boys but is great for math and science concepts. Munchkin loves the show and has learned so much from watching it. The books aren't as clear about explaining the science or math but are fun.
