The Bubble Wrap Queen

A Picture Book with Safety Tips for the Playground, Car, Bike, and More


SKU: A411-Net

Play and live safely...outside of the bubble wrap!

In The Bubble Wrap Queen, Julia Cook has created a book that teaches the key B.A.S.I.C.S of injury prevention, Be Aware and Safe in Common Situations, to creatively address:

  • Playground safety
  • Poison control
  • Automobile safety
  • Bicycle safety and more!

While The Bubble Wrap Queen undoubtedly makes learning these and other such safety messages more fun, the underlying messages are no laughing matter because the more your child enjoys reading and learning about them, the more they stick. And the more they stick, the more likely they are to save lives! Includes parent safety tips.

Julia Cook, M.S. is a award-winning children’s author, counselor, and parenting expert. She has presented in thousands of schools and speaks at education and counseling conferences nationally and internationally. Julia has published almost one hundred children’s books on a wide range of character and social development topics, and regularly contributes to print and television media about these topics. The goal behind Cook’s work is to actively involve young people in fun, memorable stories and teach them to become lifelong problem-solvers. Inspiration for her books comes from working with children and carefully listening to counselors, parents, and teachers, in order to stay on top of needs in the classroom and at home. Cook has the innate ability to enter the worldview of a child through storybooks, giving children both the “what to say” and the “how to say it.”

Bubble wrap! It has an intriguing feel and a surprising sound when popped. It is used to wrap and protect our most delicate and precious possessions. Julia Cook creates a self proclaimed “Bubble Wrap Queen” whose humor and safety consciousness provides several important messages. The story’s delightful tone will serve to teach and remind children and parents of the important precautions to play and live safely. Congratulations, Julia Cook!
