Mary Eakin is a graduate from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. For many years she worked as a graphic designer for companies across the U.S. including Hallmark’s Gift Book division where she designed over a hundred books. She co-wrote the children’s book The Amazing Journey to Grandma’s House with Cheryl Hawkinson. Mary was the designer on several Hallmark Interactive Storybooks, which earned a Dr. Toy award. Recently, Mary moved to Bethesda, Maryland where she continues to design, write and illustrate. The most recent book she illustrated entitled Truly, Madly, Carefully by Molly Wigand is now available at Hallmark stores and online.
Pop the Bubble is a children’s book in which a girl is seen making a bubble and playing with it. The illustrations in the book are good, but nothing much apart from that. If you see it as a parent, there are a thing or two for your child to learn from this book, like numbers from 1 to 3, hand movements, and directions. If you see it is a child, then there is no purpose necessary. When the writer saying blow the bubble or brush away the leaves, the child might just keep doing it on the pages without any changes, in vain.
I would not suggest this book but if you have already bought it, then it is not a total waste.
