Bubbles, the zooming, tooting manatee

By Minky Stapleton

Published by Scholastic NZ

Meet Bubbles, a lovable, funny, one-of-a-kind young manatee with a love for speed! Bubbles is a gassy little manatee who loves swimming fast. The more she eats, the more she toots, and the faster she zoots. Her elegant mother and aunties are horrified, but when trouble comes – in the form of a hungry alligator – will Bubbles save the day?

Bubbles is  a heart-warming tale about celebrating your differences and finding your own place in the world. And it includes fun and farty facts about manatees, what more could you need?

Below are Bubbles' Teacher Notes and Activity Sheets for some further fun!
