Have you ever heard your child utter the infamous words "I'm bored"? In this funny and charming picture book a young girl confronts her boredom head on by attempting to convince a very unimpressed potato that kids are not boring! I read this book at storytime and the kids were in stitches anytime the potato said "BORING!"

A great book. It's not often a 4 year old and a 6 year old can both sit down and enjoy a story together so much.
