Potatoe Joe


POTATO JOE; Keith Baker; New York: Harcourt, 2008; unpaged. Picture Book

Potato Joe is a great guy--friendly, exuberant, and tasty. He and his fellow potatoes begin this delightful counting book with the familiar One Potato, Two Potato, which quickly morphs into so much more, as Potato Joe and friends wind up at the Rodeo dancing Do-si-Do, and then hang out with Watermelon Moe. What a great read-aloud this book will be, although it is so jouncy, who could sit still for it? Great pictures perfectly matched to a delightful text.
