   My Son Loves This Series
My kids are 10 years old every month. They can choose a new book to download. My son now owns all of these books. I like that they teach life lessons while also keeping him entertained. He thinks they are hilarious, but he is starting to think about the morals of the story as well. I'm impressed. Keep coming!
   Just PRECIOUS! We bought the whole series!!!
The books from this series are very popular with my 4 year old boy. After reading Bad Egg for the first time, we bought the rest. Highly recommend. A great life lesson can be found in the illustration and storyline that serves as a great reminder for parents.
   Perfect message for our screen addicted kids!
I bought all the books in the series for my classroom. I read this one to the kids when we were coming back into school after online school. It's about a couch potato that can't interact with the world in person but can communicate over screens. He is forced to entertain himself by going outside when there is a power outage.
   A big hit in our home
This book is a great addition to the collection. We love the other books, but this one is our favorite. Life lessons are taught in a fun way in the story. The artwork is fun. Every time we read it, we notice something different. My kids are more aware of their screen time and they limit themselves on their own which is great! These remind me of the Oh Bean. There were books from the 80's. The quality of the hardbound book is not very good, the pages are thin and cheap. That's the only negative I have.
   a great one for the littles ones in your life, maybe even teens LOL
A children's book about a potato. The illustrations are cute. Text is easy to read. A couch potato might feel like getting off the comfy couch and going for a walk outside. It was WOT. Let's not get too carried away, only occasionally. It's a nice place to be because the couch is comfortable and cozy. It's a great book for the kids. This may be a funny way to talk to your teen who is playing too many electronic games.
   another hit !!!!
Jory's ability to relate with young children in a way that keeps us coming back for more is what makes these wonderful stories so special. Our house is a place where we eat snacks and play board games every day, but our couch is not always comfortable. I'm pretty sure that Sophia's dog would end up being called King Tater. tater tots have become a favorite.
   Nice message
Our sons liked the two previous books so we bought this one. There is a nice message without being overly idealized. The message suggests getting together with friends rather than video chatting, which can seem a bit off in the Pandemic. It doesn't work under the current circumstances, even though the message is great. The book is well written and illustrated. The message of enjoying everything in moderation is good for younger kids.
   Another great book by this duo!
I absolutely adore these authors. When I saw the duo was coming out with another book, I ordered it immediately and it was great. I shared it with my kindergarten class and my 3rd grade student I mentor, and it was enjoyed by all. A great message is presented in a fun way for kids and a little bit of humor for the adults too!
The book was in a bad condition. The cover of the book is ripped and it doesn't close all the way. -()
   In LOVE!
I didn't understand my excitment for this book. The wait was worth it for me, I pre ordered weeks ago. I enjoyed reading this book because my boys tend to think that the tablets or xbox is better than a bike ride or fresh air. Absolutely hilarious, witty, and perfect. I have every book from this collection and I love it just as much as the other ones. This book is for sale! You and your kids will like it.
