Description
Meet Spoon.
He's always been a happy little utensil. But lately, he feels like life as a spoon just isn't cutting it. He thinks Fork, Knife, and The Chopsticks all have it so much better than him. But do they? And what do "they "think about Spoon? A book for all ages, "Spoon" serves as a gentle reminder to celebrate what makes us each special.
