He's always been a happy little utensil. But lately, he feels like life as a spoon just isn't cutting it.
He thinks Fork, Knife and Chopsticks all have it so much better than he does. But do they? And what do they think about Spoon?
A book for all ages, Spoon serves as a gentle reminder to celebrate what makes us each special.
This book is really cute. I really like it. I read it often to my little man as I feel it is very important for my children to know that our individuality and uniqueness's are special and are to be accepted as a part of who we really are and to accept and appreciate other's difference's as well.
A simple tale, with a strong message that sometimes, though you may think everyone else is better off than you, you may find that they feel the same way about you! Thus, the grass may not always be greener on the other side of the fence... it may just be a different shade.
I read this to my youngest son, who is starting to recognise various letters and numbers already, and he was delighted by the illustrations. The story shot right over his little head, but that was OK - it was more to gauge his level of interest and enjoyment really.
Overall, there isn't a lot to this book, but I can say the illustrations were delightful, in a cute, quirky way, and the story, though brief, is very telling. It does indeed remind us to celebrate our unique differences and special natures. Great for kids up to about 6 years old.

The Nazis have invaded Poland and are herding all Jews into ghettos in the cities. Hanna's family are forced into hiding in the countryside. For a while it seems they are safe. But hiding from the Germans means trusting others. Rounded up by the SS, Hanna and her family are sent to the Warsaw Ghetto where they must use whatever skills they have to survive.
