About This Book
Meet the Friendliest Guy in the Utensil Drawer!
This funny, inventive book celebrates what makes everyone unique!
Spoon has always been a happy little utensil who loves his family. But lately he's been feeling down. He thinks his friends Knife, Fork, and Chopsticks have it so much better than him. He can't cut like Knife, he's not as useful as Fork, and no one thinks he's cool and exotic like Chopsticks. But Spoon's friends think he has it made; he gets to be silly and bang on pots, dive headfirst into bowls of ice cream, and relax in mugs of warm tea. Spoon's mom helps him see that he and his friends each have their own jobs to do, and that's what makes them special!
"Spoon" serves as a gentle reminder to celebrate what makes each child special.
