Storybook Bento: Origami Yoda

March is National Reading Month and Laptop Lunches asked us to help them celebrate with a storybook bento! We love our Literary Lunch series and the kids were excited to be able to pick the book themselves this time! They picked their current favorite: The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger!

The Strange Case of Origami Yoda is about the good and bad dynamics of a sixth-grade class and Dwight, an unpopular kid, who talks to his friends via an origami finger puppet of Yoda. If that's not already strange enough - Origami Yoda is surprisingly wise and on point. He predicts the date of a pop quiz, guesses who stole the classroom Shakespeare bust, and saves a classmate from popularity-crushing embarrassment with some well-timed advice. Tommy, Dwight's classmate, sets out to figure out how Origami Yoda can be so wise when Dwight clueless. This is a great and fun book for kids 8-12. You can even learn how to fold your own Origami Yoda! We truly love this series and have reached book four in the series. Join us in reading this witty series of books any middle schooler with a love of Star Wars is surely to enjoy!

Our Origami Yoda Laptop Lunches Bento Box lunch is filled with:
  • Broccoli and cheese stars
  • an Origami Yoda Pepperoni and Salad wrap with a green grape light saber
  • kiwi and strawberries with more light sabers ( you can never have enough of those!)
  • and a Star Wars swirled yogurt with a Yoda wafer (thanks, Sis!)

  1. Your lunch turned out amazing! My kiddo saw that book at the bookstore and asked for it. It is good to know that your kiddos like the series. We have not read any of these books, yet.

  2. This is amazing! I'm going to have to keep my eyes out for this series, too!
