    One of the best children s books I ve read so far this year Rosenthal is probably much better known for her Little Pea story which I found cute but not altogether moving or inspiring This story, however, is all that andIt still has the humorous language and puns here and there, and of course it is ever so adorable and fun to see one s silverware come to life But beyond that, it is a story that I think every child and every adult, if they are being honest can relate to the conce One of the best children s books I ve read so far this year Rosenthal is probably much better known for her Little Pea story which I found cute but not altogether moving or inspiring This story, however, is all that andIt still has the humorous language and puns here and there, and of course it is ever so adorable and fun to see one s silverware come to life But beyond that, it is a story that I think every child and every adult, if they are being honest can relate to the concern that one is not special and that everyone else has it better than they do in some way or another What we don t always consider is how we look from other people s eyes and perhaps we are the subject of their envy Little Spoon learns that he can do lots of splendid things that no one else can do, that we each have our own talents, and that life is best when we are content in our own skin or silverware drawer

    This is a terrific book addressing feelings of envy and of appreciating your own strengths and privileges It s about the very endearing character of Spoon I thought this book was enchanting it s creative, it s funny, it has really cute illustrations, and I could definitely identify with little Spoon.I m actually surprised that this book isn t on a whole slew of banned book lists given the spooning that goes on at the end, even if it is with little Spoon and his parents.

    An appealing picture book exploration of the idea that the grass is always greener on the other side, Amy Krouse Rosnethal s Spoon is the story of a young utensil who longs to belike his friends Knife gets to do exciting things like cut, Fork travels to interesting places, and Chopsticks are considered cool and exotic How can a simple spoon compete Of course Knife, Fork and Chopsticks have their own ideas about what is desirable, and Spoon eventually sees the wisdom in his mother s An appealing picture book exploration of the idea that the grass is always greener on the other side, Amy Krouse Rosnethal s Spoon is the story of a young utensil who longs to belike his friends Knife gets to do exciting things like cut, Fork travels to interesting places, and Chopsticks are considered cool and exotic How can a simple spoon compete Of course Knife, Fork and Chopsticks have their own ideas about what is desirable, and Spoon eventually sees the wisdom in his mother s assurance that he too has some wonderful tasks to perform.Young readers will identify with Spoon s wistful longing to be somebody else, and find comfort in his mother s reassurance that he is someone special Scott Magoon s whimsical illustrations skillfully convey the emotion of the story, and are the perfect counterpart to the simple but perceptive narrative Rosenthal seems to be building a body of work that addresses common childhood concerns with sensitivity and humor, and I look forward to readingof her work I do wonder why it is that spoons, peas Little Pea , owls Little Hoot , and pigs Little Oink all seem to be boys in the author s imaginative landscape, but will hope that the feminine will enter the picture at some point
