    This is a great story and a great lesson for kids (and adults) of all ages.

    "Spoon" is a new book by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Scott Magoon. It is all about Spoon, the main character, not recognizing his special ways of doing stuff and wishing he were more like his friends.
    Spoon says he wishes he could do the things that his friends Fork, Knife, and Chopsticks could do. What he doesn't know is that all of his friends wish they were more like him because of the special things he can do. They think that Spoon is so special because he can do things like diving headfirst into a bowl of ice cream.
    The story of Spoon is a great kids' book. It teaches the important lesson to not be jealous of what others can do, but instead to be happy with what you can do because everyone is special in their own way.
    This is a great story and a great lesson for kids (and adults) of all ages.

    SPOON is so CUTE!

    A funny, sweet story about a Spoon who wonders if the other utensils have it better than him. His mother and father talk him through it (the others are different, not better), and the story ends with a goodnight and all the spoons spooning in their drawer. My daughter makes me read it every night before bed, and she's been "reading" it back to me, too!

    The art is super-cute and appealing.

    Spoon by Amy Krouse Rosenthal Review by Becky Tobin

    Spoon was an awesome book for my husband Bill and I to give to our grandchildren. It is a simple book and because of their ages ( 7, 5, 3, and 1 )they could understand what it meant. It truly told a story how special each one of them are and not to forget it. Also, talking of ice cream and eating cereal, children know and do these things and can relate. Our grandchildren live out-of-state, 3 in Ohio and 1 in Texas, so both families received the book. As an added touch, my husband hand-carved each grandchild spoons for them to have whenever they eat their ice cream and their cereal. Each spoon is different in its own way like they are, like the book says. Plus the spoons will be a remembrance for them to have from their Papa Billy.
    I was fortunate to find this book and pass it on to my grandchildren.

    Absolutely adorable! A Must-Own book!

    This book is the epitome of cuteness and another winner from Amy Krouse Rosenthal. The illustrations are utterly fantastic, especially when Spoon and his friends are demonstrating their respective culinary abilities. The language is cute without being cutesy, smart and clever and doesn't talk down to kids. A wonderful overall lesson, a must have for any parent and perfect gift to any child (of any age).
