Time to Do the Robot, Potato Style!
by Traci Swain
Everyone has a favorite pair of pants…even a potato!
The Book of the Week—Potato Pants! by Laurie Keller—stars a spud who is so excited to be shopping at the one-day-only sale at Lance Vance’s Fancy Pants Store. But right before Potato is about to enter, he sees the same eggplant who pushed him down yesterday while running to the store. Potato refuses to shop while Eggplant is inside. Instead, he watches through the store window with a severe case of FOMO (fear of missing out)!
Will Potato and Eggplant ever become friends? And will Potato get the pants he needs?
In this Book Girls takeover, Priya, Gabi, and Hannah talk about some of the reasons they love Potato Pants!, including:
• The social-emotional message of forgiveness
• The silly characters that make them laugh
• Potato’s determination even after things don’t initially go according to plan
Share the video with your class to get students excited about reading this fun, laugh-out-loud Book of the Week!
