9781604190625: Bud the Spud

Bud was a kid, like any other kid. He liked pizza and ice cream. He liked to watch TV. But what happens when a kid (like any other kid) eats way too much junk food and watches way too much TV, and never, ever leaves the couch? You guessed it--he turns into a couch potato. Literally! You won't believe what happens to him next. . . .

What happens when a kid eats too much junk food and watches too much TV, and never, ever leaves the couch? You guessed it: he turns into a couch potato--literally!
In a unique feature, the book has three separate endings--three different outcomes for poor Bud--which range from the positive and uplifting to the decidedly macabre (which kids thoroughly love). Behind the humor is a serious message to help combat childhood obesity

From the Author:

Many years ago, in the land of Gainesville, there lived two children. A sister and brother. And they liked to watch TV. Their favorite channel was created by an evil mouse, and they would watch it from when the got up to when they left for school and when they got home to when it was bed time and, on weekends, from waking up to going to sleep. 

One day they were watching a new show. It was a show about playgrounds around the country. They sat and watched kids playing while, outside, the sun was shining and the air was crisping on a spring day as lovely as any had ever been. 

Outside was a swing. But they watched kids on TV swing. Outside was a slide. But they watched kids on TV slide. And that was when their father and mother decided the TV channel must go away and the kids must go outside.

Perhaps, at some point, the kids should have been let back in.

Thus was Bud the Spud born, to tell your kids what will happen if they become couch potatoes. Why? So you won't have to.

This story, this special story, this story you hold in your hands, is not just a work of art. No. it is a tool. A field-tested instrument honed to auditory and interactive perfection with participants ages four to sixty. At least I think sixty. She looked like sixty. It's sometimes so hard to tell. Anyway....

It was developed to be read aloud. And read aloud it was to kindergarten, first, second and third grade classes, middle school classes. High school classes, collective classes, mixed classes in pods. Each time a something fell flat, it was changed. If the rhythm failed to leave an obvious place to pause for a response or the response did not come, it was fixed. Tuned and retuned, again and again. I'm telling you--you can't mess this up. Really.

Can it be read silently? I'm glad you asked. Yes. High school and middle school classes tried it and, sure enough, loved it. Then we read it aloud to them and they loved it again. Each experience a little different.

So have no fear. This field-tested, well-honed, finely tuned instrument of joy and instruction will bring delight to you and your kids. No matter what age your kids are. Your grandkids too. And great-grandkids. And the kids across the street. Any kids. Any age.

So take it home, bring it to school, give it as a present, read it at bedtime. If you do, your teeth will shine, your luck will improve and your kids will thank you. I promise at least one of those things will happen.

I promise.

From the Inside Flap:

Bud was a kid, like any other kid. He liked pizza and ice cream. He liked to watch TV. But what happens when a kid (like any other kid) eats way too much junk food and watches way too much TV, and never, ever leaves the couch?

You guessed it--he turns into a couch potato. Literally!

You won't believe what happens to him next. . . .
