There Once Was a Potato book review and giveaway CLOSED



There Was Once A Potato
All is well on Maple Street. The confident and rather cocky Clamatoe Potato and his pals are chillin' until one day Alakazam Yam moves in and turns their icebox world upside down....










Take the There Once Was a Potato quiz!



 This is a great book and for us is a very timely subject as our kids have started to make real friends outside of our family and deal with confrontation on their own.  I'd venture to say if you don't think this book is relevant to your elementary school kids, you probably need to dig a little deeper.
Not that I'm an expert by any means but I'm quickly finding that my son who is SOO strong and bold at home, is easily crumbling pressure and he's only in 1st grade.  I want to make sure he isn't being pushed around, but also realize its a VERY thin line between being bullied and being the bully.

I think lighthearted material such as this book can be a huge help for parents in talking to their kids about these situations now while they're still young and willing to really share with us.







Would you like to win your own copy of There Once Was a Potato?

  1. I became a follower of hers but have spent over an hour looking at her blog. I love her! Thanks for sharing her site. :)

    If I won the book, I'd give it to my two girls, of course! We're starting to do better about bedtime reading together, so any new books would be much appreciated!

    I'd like to give this book to my 5 year old granddaughter. She's in kindergarten, but I can already see the peer pressure starting to rear its ugly head.
