Spoon by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Spoon has been feeling a little down. Even though he has a great family with lots of interesting relatives (his great-grandmother ran away with a dish), he just feels a little left out. His friend Knife gets to cut things. His friend Fork gets to go everywhere. Neither of them ever gets stir crazy like Spoon. But maybe things for Spoon are not so bad. Spoon might just be surprised at what his friends think of his life.
I really enjoyed this book. It is a great read aloud. It carries a message inside of an interesting story so the kids don't know they are learning about accepting themselves just the way they are. Amy Krause Rosenthal's books each carry a little lesson placed carefully inside a fun book for the kids. I recommend this books as well as her books Little Pea, Little Oink & Little Owl.
