Special thank you to the author for a copy of adorable book!! 🙂
If you’re not from Upstate New York, you may not have heard of salt potatoes or the most famous salt potato, Pepper. Pepper the Salt Potato was planing a visit to the New York State Fair with friends Jam the Jelly Jar, Snap the Pickle, and of course, Phil the Paper Bag. There’s one problem. Pepper could find any excuse not to take a bath because potatoes like dirt. Despite the friends’ efforts to get Pepper ready for the contest, Pepper wanted to stay dirty. He chanted his mantra, “I am who I am!” What are the chances Pepper will win a trophy for Best Potato of the Year at the State Fair?
Pepper the Salt Potato is a super cute children’s book that shows the important of wanting to be yourself.
I really enjoyed the moments where we to learn about some places around New York like the Salt Museum, and animals like a red fox. It is more than a cute book with silly characters and I always enjoy when an author can incorporate more learning than just a great moral. The other little tidbit I loved is the recipe in the back of the book. Such a perfect little addition to a book personifying food.
Overall, a really adorable read with more Easter eggs than just a few laughs. I think younger children and toddlers would absolutely enjoy this!
