#TakingCareThurs-The Potato Chip Champ

About the book-The Potato Chip Champ by Maria Dismondy

Champ and Walter Norbert Whipplemoore are about as different as two kids can be, well, except for their love of baseball and potato chips. Champ had everything, but always wanted more. Walter had very little, but was never seen without a smile on his face. In the end, it is Walter and some crunchy potato chips that teach Champ a lesson about character that can’t be taught in school.

What this book teaches-Empathy and Kindness

My review of the book:

I wrote this book! From my teaching experience, I learned that there were children from a number of backgrounds. I love that Walter Norbert may come from a single parent and he may not have the latest and greatest things but that doesn’t make a difference when it comes to having friends. It’s not about WHAT you have, it’s about WHO you are! And we have the choice to be a person that stands for kindness, friendship and peace!
