Bubbles and Buddy are two adorable kittens. They are brothers and best friends and playmates and pals. The story emphasizes right off the bat that everyone is different, and that it is okay to be different. 

Bubbles and Buddy look different, play differently, have individual personalities, they like different things, are afraid of different things and they don’t always get along – but that is okay! They still love each other, they are still brothers, they still have fun, they still take care of each other and will always be best friends and brothers – no matter what.

It’s so important that we impress upon children the absolute acceptance of being okay with being different. In a world where we learn to compare ourselves to others very early on, this is a message that is never too early to instill. That “Bubbles and Buddy” does so in a kind and gentle manner is a bonus and a win for the author.

It doesn’t rhyme but reads poetically, meaning the author’s words feel like they float across the pages – warm, inviting, unintimidating, accepting. It is a delightful, serene reading experience.

The first word that came to mind when I saw the cover of Bubbles and Buddy was, “SWEET!” The illustrations are simple in nature and so very charming. These two little guys cut straight to my heart with their endearing and magnetic-like sweet faces. I turned through the pages several times just to look at these boys. I couldn’t get enough, and little ones will be easily lured into the story by the soft, subtle hues enhancing each page.

Preschoolers and early readers will especially love the lighthearted and playful personalities of Bubbles and Buddy and will be able to identify with one or both of the kittens in their various likes and dislikes, habits and behaviors. That said, this book is not just for kids! The author pulls the reader into the story - even as an adult my preferences swayed towards one of the kittens in particular because I could easily relate to his tendencies.

I highly recommend “Bubbles and Buddy” to readers of all ages but it is an especially important message for our tiniest tots! It’s an impressive debut by Denver Kidd.

This is a lovely book.
It is very simple, clean and clear, very nice for small children. The story is about two small kittens. They are brothers but they are very different from each other and like different things. No matter their differences we learn they can love each other very much.
The illustrations of this book are absolutely charming. I have seen many cat characters in children’s books but I gotta say these are some of my favorites. The kittens are pictured adorably, they look so charming and full personality and individuality. The illustrator did a very good job and makes us fall in love with these small cuties.
The style of the text and pictures is very fun and appropriate to teach small children that is ok to disagree, to be different from your sibling/friend/etc and still be great friends that love each other.
A very cute book, I strongly recommend.
