It’s been a while since I have blogged about a great book for kids. Today you get a double whammy. Spoon and Chopsticks, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, are absolutely precious and serious fan favorites over at the Pless house. Both books are told through the eyes of everyday utensils, a little spoon and a pair of chopsticks. While “Spoon” tackles topics like feeling lonely or different and ends on a note about seeing the beauty and strength in being unique, “Chopsticks” reminds us that while having a partner in crime is a wonderful feeling, being independent and trying new things can be exciting and liberating. Great messages for children of any age. Scott Magoon’s illustrations are super cute as well. The pair makes a great gift!
