I Recommend: Spoon & Chopsticks

There are a lot of small people in my house, so I've become quite an avid picture book admirer. 

Here are two books I've come across lately:


And SPOON's not-quite-sequel ("more like a change in place setting") CHOPSTICKS

Both are adorable, clever, and utterly re-readable.

All five of my kids enjoy these books.
My older kids love the puns.
My younger kids love the sweet stories.
They all love the pictures.

So, if you're looking for a fun read for a child in your life
(or for yourself!)
I recommend SPOON and CHOPSTICKS. 

Have you read these? 

Now for a quick kitten fix:

And if you haven't signed up yet, there's less than a week until...

Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!

(My dashingly handsome sidekick comes home from football camp tomorrow night. And then I'm going to SLEEP for awhile. What are your weekend plans?)


  1. Amy, these books sound lovely. Thanks for spotlighting ... I'm glad your husband will be back soon. Before you fall asleep for a week, please say a prayer for me (for healing and grace -- I'm again sick).

  2. Those look like great books. Will have to check them out for my youngest daughter. And that pic of your kittens is just too adorable! It almost had me out the door to add more kittens to our family they are so cute.

  3. Okay, I've got to have these books. :) I LOVE Amy Krouse Rosenthal's other picture books (have you read her Little Pea 'series?'), and as an American family living in China, well, why wouldn't we simply NEED these two as well???

  4. I've not read those books but they sound just perfect, the kind that appeals on different levels. And I'm a sucker for kittens so thanks for that photo.

  5. So, I gather these books ARE NOT about spoons and chopsticks... :)

    Thanks for the recommendations! I'll see if I can find these at my library.

  6. I don't have children but I will have to recommend these to my sister for her children. They sound cute!
    I hope you had a good weekend

  7. These are all great. I remember how fun using chopsticks. Chopsticks look extremely elegant and using them on the dinner table gives you an another kind of royal feeling, a connection with an old-yet-preserved oriental culture.
