You Can’t Kiss a Bubble, written by Karen A. Wyle and illustrated by Siski Kalla, is a love letter to soap bubbles – the kind you can blow with a wand. The little girl in the illustrations imagines playing with her bubble in the same ways she plays with her other toys or even her pets. But soap bubbles aren’t like anything else. You can’t kiss one – it will POP. You can’t put one in your toy box and expect it to be there when you return. You can’t take it for a walk. It doesn’t even last as long as an ice cream cone. She has to learn to play with soap bubbles for what they are – brief dancing rainbows that float on the breeze!
Siski Kalla’s delightful illustrations bring this imaginative tale to life. The girl in this story has a lot to learn about soap bubbles – for example, it’s easy to catch one if you rub your hands with bubble stuff first. But she knows the important stuff. Things don’t have to last a long time to be enjoyed. Things don’t have to be predictable to be beautiful. Soap bubbles are fun to watch and you can dance with them. Soap bubbles are a metaphor for the beauty of life that a young child can appreciate. I highly recommend You Can’t Kiss a Bubble by Karen A. Wyle to anyone who has ever played with soap bubbles or anyone who has watched others enjoy this ephemeral treat.
