This book is about two chopstick friends who are inseparable- they were best friends and did everything together. They had the same friends, went the same places, until one day, they became detached and were distraught. It wasn't until then that they realized how much more they could experience without being attached to each other. This book demonstrates the power in independence and experiencing life while not being by their friend's side constantly. This children's book is great for children between ages 5-8! ( )

Excellent for read aloud to illustrate word play, idioms, etc. So cute! ( )

This is a delightful story filled with clever puns. It tells the story of two chopsticks that do everything together, but one day a misfortunate accident separates the two. They now must navigate through the world alone, and through courage they learn that being independent actually strengthens their friendship. I really enjoyed the lesson taught in this story. ( )

We used this book with our Global Read-Aloud. I had so much fun responding with my assigned students. I really enjoyed Amy Krouse Rosenthal's style and her use of personification and puns. This would be a great book for an interactive read-aloud. I could just imagine all the funny and cute responses that you would get from kids. The chopsticks were best friends and didn't leave each other's sides. One chopstick went out on his own and saw that he could do things by himself but he told his friend about his adventures. ( )
