Chopsticks - A Picture Book that Clicks

It is picture book Friday.  Yipee!  This week I am indulging in my love for a wonderful picture book author, Amy Krouse Rosenthal.  Just about anything she writes is absolutely magical for me. Her books in the Little Pea series are genius and ones that I give as gifts time and time again.  But she also has more to her repertoire that is quirky and fabulous and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share it with you.

Title:       Chopsticks

Author:   Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Target:    Preschool - Grade 2

What this book is about:
You must meet chopsticks.  They are an inseparable duo who have perfected their teamwork.  However, one day they come to a fork in the road, when one of them is injured and they realize that while they work well together, they can also stand on their own!

Why I love this book:
Well, besides being adorable, this book has a wonderful play on words.  “No one stirred, not even Spoon.”  “Knife was sharp like that.”  How can you resist that text!  The illustrations are engaging and the little details in the drawings just make it fun to read.

This book is a spin off from the author’s last book Spoon.  I can’t wait to see what she does for the other utensils.

Who this book is for:
Any child who like an engaging picture book with details that make reading it again a delight.

Final thoughts:
As the author says, “Not exactly a sequel to Spoon.  More like a change in place setting.”
