9780061804397: Little Sweet Potato

"It's not all mulch and sunshine out there."

When Little Sweet Potato rolls away from his patch, he is forced to search for a new home. He stumbles upon some very mean plants on his journey and begins to wonder if maybe he is too lumpy and bumpy to belong anywhere. Will Little Sweet Potato ever find a home that's just right for him?

Amy Beth Bloom and Noah Z. Jones have created a funny and timeless tale about appreciating one's self, lumps and bumps and all, and finding a community that takes all kinds.

About the Author:

Amy Beth Bloom, Writer-in-Residence at Wesleyan University, has been nominated for a National Book Award and a National Book Critics Circle Award for her adult fiction. This is her first book for young readers.



Noah Z. Jones is an author, illustrator, and animator. He has illustrated numerous books for children, including Not Norman by Kelly Bennett and Those Shoes by Maribeth Boelts. Noah lives with his family in Los Angeles, California.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1-Little Sweet Potato's search for a place to belong begins when he is accidentally ejected onto the road from his garden patch. Rolling from field to field, he is repeatedly rejected for his lumpy, bumpy, dumpy exterior by the carrots, eggplants, flowers, and so on, who are all thoroughly unpleasant. "He didn't know the world had such mean vegetation in it." He is completely dispirited when he hears a voice calling to him and saying very nice things. Soon the happy Little Sweet Potato finds himself in the Hodge-Podge Patch, which is filled with friendly and welcoming vegetables and flowers. As one of the pansies tells him, "Some just like their own kind...but we're the kind that likes all kinds." Bloom's text is clever and fun to read while getting her point across, and the dialogue is especially spot-on. Jones's amusing illustrations are filled with great expressions and cartoony goodness. The text is well integrated with the pictures in a layout that works well for one-on-one or group sharing. This simple story of rejection and acceptance will resonate with kids.-Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NHα(c) Copyright 2011.
