You've played the game. Now read the legend of how it all began...Long ago, in an ancient and distant realm called the Kingdom of Backyard, there lived a warrior named ROCK. Meanwhile in the Empire of Mom's Home Office, a second great warrior sought the glory of battle. And his name was PAPER. At the same time, in the Kitchen Realm, in the tiny village of Junk Drawer, lived a third warrior. They called her SCISSORS. These three were the strongest, smartest, and fastest in all the land. Time and again they beat the most fearsome opponents they could find: an apricot, a computer printer--even frozen, breaded, dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets! But when the warriors finally meet each other, the most epic round of battles begins...and never ends. That is why, to this day, children around the world honor these worthy adversaries by playing ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS!--Provided by Publisher.… (more)

silly epic book ( )

Paper, the smartest warrior, Rock, the strongest warrior, and Scissors, the fastest blade are all familiar characters in mom's home office. The brilliant pictures and googly eyes keep the reader interested to get to the bottom of the legend. The hugging at the end of this picture book leads to friendship and the continuation of the game Rock, Paper, Scissors. This humorous, personification of Rock, Paper, and Scissors will be enjoyed by all readers.

picture book (fiction). I was invited to speak at a local service group's meeting, so I brought this to read aloud to them as a treat--grown ups don't get to have stories read to them very often! They were a pretty reserved audience, so it's hard to tell for sure, but I think most of them enjoyed it (one of them said he would go buy it, presumably as a gift for a child or grandchild, but one never knows). Personally, I thought it was worth more than a few chuckles.

my 2nd reading to an audience of 4-6th graders went pretty well; most of the kids (not sure about the 6th graders way in the back) got pretty into it, telling me who was going to win each battle, etc. and at least one 4th grader had plans to check the book out afterward. Success! ( )

With the picture book " The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors" we are brought back to the old schoolyard game played by many. Do you know the tale of how this game came to be? When reading more into the book, we get to uncover the tale. Many journey with the character are soon brought to us to see. After reading this specific book to the classroom, students can listen to a tale and they can also take their own spin on the book by using their voices to make the book more unique. ( )
