Spoon – Amy Krouse Rosenthal

I really love children’s books!   Although our daughter is more interested in non-fiction animal books at the moment, I always make sure we take a look at the new picture books when we visit the library.  When I pulled out Spoon I just knew it was going to be a winner, and from her quick request to read it again please directly after I finished it, I knew it was.

Great children’s books have a clear message that children as well as adults can understand and appreciate.  Spoon has a big lesson to share.  Spoon begins to question his life as a spoon imagining life would be so much better and ultimately more meaningful if he were a fork, a knife, or perhaps chopsticks.  Little does he know the wistful ways in which the other utensils long to be more like him.

This one is not to be missed!
