Bubble gum, bubble gum in a dish. How many pieces do you wish? So begins a delightful children’s picture book for young ones written and illustrated by Tracey M. Cox. Ms. Cox draws on the nostalgia of childhood with her catchy title and often used phrasing of kids everywhere.

Children will enjoy and learn from Ms. Cox’s use of repetition, alliteration and rhyming and will also be encouraged to be open and accepting of cultural diversity through her beautifully illustrated characters. 

BUBBLE GUM, BUBBLE GUM IN A DISH teaches about color and counting concepts as the story builds from one piece of bubble gum to ten pieces exploding in a final pink “pop!”  Ms. Cox’s colorful and bright illustrations are a perfect complement to her text.

This verbally and visually pleasing and fun story brings back memories of childhood, and kids and parents will enjoy reading it time and again while learning how to count to 10 and identify basic colors.  A must read!
