I'm Bored" by Michael Ian Black, illustrated by Debbie Ridpath Ohi

Well, this is one of the best children's books I have read this year- too funny!  Michael Ian Black's I'm Bored (illustrated by Debbie Ridpth Ohi), starts with a little girl facing a very boring day.  And then she finds a potato.  The girl then sets out to convince the potato that kids are not boring, but really are tons of fun.  Oh yeah, there's also a flamingo.

I giggled quite a bit while reading this book.  There are moments that are completely random but it also has a great message.  There is plenty to do when you are bored- from pretending to be a singer to putting on an imaginary ballet.  I really can't wait for the opportunity to get to read this book out loud.  I'm not sure if most kids will laugh at this book as much as I did but I do think they will enjoy the various way the girl entertains herself and thinking about the ways they have fun.

Happy Reading
