One Potato, Two Potato

Each week the library hosts a book club for children 4-7 years old*. This group, The Book Bunch, mixes books and crafts without the formal format of a storytime.

This week, in honor of the upcoming Saint Patrick's Day holiday, we read and discussed One Potato, Two Potato by Cynthia DeFelice with illustrations by Andrea U'Ren. This is the story of a very poor, humble couple who lives so simple a life they share everything. One day the husband discovers a pot with magical powers buried under the very last potato in the garden.

After reading the book we discussed this book versus another similar one we read, Two of Everything by Lily Toy Hong and also discussed what WE would do with a magical pot.

For the craft we made potatoes.

Join us Wednesday afternoons for our young reader book group. New crafters are always welcome!

*Children up to and including 8/9 are welcome but may wish to join out monthly 'tween bookclub, TBC.
