Spoon by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Spoon is feeling sad because his life does not seems as exciting as the lives of his friends Knife, Fork, and Chopsticks. He covets their thrilling jobs and unique styles (“And Chopsticks! They are so lucky! Everyone thinks they’re really cool and exotic.”). As it turns out, the other pieces of cutlery think Spoon is the lucky one because he gets to bang on pots, sink into a bowl of ice cream, or relax in hot cup of tea. Essentially this is a story about celebrating your own unique characteristics, which is a great lesson that all children (and many adults) should learn! The illustrations are hilarious and make this a book that should definitely be shared with young children.
