Spoon is jealous of his friends Fork, Knife, and Chopsticks because he thinks they have cooler uses than a spoon. Fortunately, his mother points out how great it is to be a spoon. Amy Krouse Rosenthal strikes again with a humorous tale of the silverware world. Illustrator Scott Magoon has even created T-Spoons!
I read this book with 5th graders for a main idea lesson and could have used it to teach personification as well. Younger students could also make text-self connections.
