Who is Melvin Bubble?
Who is Melvin Bubble by Nick Bruel is a very clever book that might help introduce your child to the concepts of identity and perspective. Melvin Bubble appears to be a regular kid. But who is he really? If you ask his dad, he'll say he's a chip off the old block! If you ask his mom, she'll ramble on about his messy room. If you ask his friend Jimmy, he'll say Melvin is the coolest ever because he can whistle through his nose! But don't stop there--ask his dog: "Woof Woof Arf Woof," ask his teddy bear: "He really likes hugs!" Ask a talking zebra, or a magic rock, or even Melvin himself. They'll all have something different to say. Because a person can be significant for multiple reasons, and everyone has a unique opinion.
