our friend, spoon

Here’s my newest favorite children’s book at the moment:

spoon

We have loved Rosenthal’s “Little Pea” and its hilarious illustrations of Little Pea swinging and enthusiastically eating his spinach.  The new book “Spoon” had all of us grinning with Spoon’s  jealousy of his other utensil friends and the illustration of his Extended Spoon Family (which honestly looked a bit like my in-laws’ silverware drawer filled with unusual ladles and serving spoons).  Unfortunately we had to leave this library book behind in Georgia, so I’ll have to pony up and purchase this one soon so we can laugh again at the chopsticks doing the tango and the knife complaining about how no one ever gets to goof around with him.
