Out kids get a week off for our county fair.
Do your kids?
The fair only lasts 4 days, so you know you;re gonna hear those immoortal words.....
Synopsis: There is NOTHING boring about being a kid, but one little girl is going to have to prove it in this anything-but-boring picture book from comedian Michael Ian Black. Just when a little girl thinks she couldn't possibly be more bored, she stumbles upon a potato who turns the tables on her by declaring that children are boring. But this girl isn't going to let a vegetable tell her what's what, so she sets out to show the unimpressed potato all the amazing things kids can do.
Too bad the potato is anything but interested.This tongue-in-cheek twist on a familiar topic is sure to entertain anyone who's ever been bored or had to hear about someone else being bored, and is filled with comedian Michael Ian Black's trademark dry wit, accompanied by charismatic illustrations from newcomer Debbie Ridpath Ohi.
Review: This book is hilarious, and any parent will easily recognize their child (children) in the tale. Kids think there is NOTHING to do, but they are only limited by their imagination! This is an excellent book to get your kids to thinking about what they COULD be doing instead of sitting around being bored, and potatoes may take on new meaning to both you and your child! We highly recommend it for vacation time, because you KNOW you are gonna hear those thee little words, "I'm BORED". Time to bring out this book, and give them other ideas! You could even make it a cooking lesson, in what can a "potato" do/turn itself into! We highly recommend it!
