Spoon is feeling sad because he can't do all of the cool and exotic things that Knife, Fork, and Chopsticks can do. What Spoon doesn't realize is all of the amazing things that he can do! Spoon finally realizes that he is lucky and grateful for being just the way he is. The humorous illustrations in this story makes this a great read aloud to remind us to celebrate what makes each of us special. ( )

Ok, so it's an old message, been done almost to death.  But the details!  I read this in the library and burst out laughing at the chopsticks being cool and exotic" doing the tango.  The 'Chinese' chopsticks, doing the 'Brazilian' tango, you see.  And of course it's all about finding your particular strengths, not getting uptight about your particular weaknesses... and what can Spoon do best?  "Spoon" (cuddle with mom and dad Spoon), of course!"

Summary: Spoon began comparing himself to other utensils and feeling bad about himself. He sees all of the things Knife, Fork, and Chopsticks can do, but fails to see all of the wonderful things he can do too. While Spoon is comparing himself to his friends, they are comparing themselves to him, wishing they can do what he can. Spoon finally sees his self worth and realizes that he is special in his own way. ( )

Lately Spoon has been thinking how his friends can do amazing things., while there's nothing special in what he does. Knife gets to cut. That's awesome. And Fork knows how to tame spaghetti. That's really skillful. And Chopsticks are so exotic!
But Knife, Fork and Chopsticks also think Spoon is very cool. And along the book Spoon will find out all the wonderful things that make him so special. Diving headfirst in a bowl of ice cream! Come on! That's hard to beat!
Very funny story with a beautiful message about valuing ourselves.

Age range: 3 to 7 years old.
