Format: Hardcover
Spoon was an adorable book, and Chopsticks doesn't disappoint either.
Chopsticks do everything together until one of them gets hurt! At first, the other one stays with his buddy through the healing process. Eventually, he is persuaded to go out and do things on his own. What results is a growth that wouldn't have occurred if they hadn't separated, as well as a lifelong friendship that can't be "broken."

I really liked the theme of this, that it is okay to branch out and try new things. It doesn't mean you will lose your friendship or stop being able to be the chopstick that you were. The illustrations in this book are simple and wonderful. Also, it is just a very cute book for children and adults. The children will like the story. The adults will like the play on words, such as how Knife is "sharp like that". With some parent interactions, I'm sure most kids will soon pick up on the quirky sayings as well. I'm not going to give away any more of the joys of this book. You'll have to read it to discover them all.

This book is a stitch. Even if you haven't read Spoon, get this book! It's clever, funny, and has a wonderful message. I purchased it for my twin godchildren. . .I knew this book would hit home for them through many stages of their lives! I read it to my own kids and they giggled and laughed and giggled some more. It's great!

My family loves everything by this author. She is clever and the illustrations are fun. Great lessons too. Try Spoon and This Plus That. You won't be dissappointed.

Format: Hardcover
Chopsticks are best friends. They've been that way forever. But one day one chopstick gets broken and must spend some time away from the other. While one chopstick explores new and different ways to be useful, the other chopstick must remain immobile while he's on the mend. Will Chopsticks continue to be friends after one has explored a new and different world, or will he leave his best friend behind?

In this adorable companion to the book Spoon, Amy Krouse Rosenthal's lovely story explores the dynamics of friendship and what happens when one friend goes away and the other must stay put. In addition, she also crafts her writing to allow teachers and students to discuss literary devices such as personification and play-on words. I particularly love that the kitchen whisk was the one who "whisked away" chopstick to get him medical attention - or that "no one stirred, not even spoon" while they were waiting to see if chopstick would be OK.

In addition to Rosenthal's clever writing, Scott Magoon's smile-inducing illustrations just might get you talking and making friends with your own kitchen utensils. I know I will never look at my kitchen whisk the same way again. Even though I've always been a fan of whisks, I have much greater respect for them now. :)

Don't think that because this is a picture book it is only for little kids. Because of Rosenthal's deft use of personification and puns, this would be a great book to read to older kids as well.

Love this book! I borrowed it from the library and liked it so much that I bought a copy to give to my best friend, who is my chopstick :)
The book is clever and smart. The drawings are adorable and my 2 1/2 year old enjoyed the story as much as I did.

This book is adorable and creative! We found it to be very engaging of the imagination and giving a good message about friendship and separation. It was a quick read with a little bit of a comic book edge. very nice.

I am finding some of my most favorite children's books late in life, it seems. But better late than not at all. I think this is one of the cutest, most clever books I have read in a very long time. The lesson being taught is subtle enough to not be overly sweet but it is such a good lesson. The wording is fun. I laughed out loud when I read it and can't wait to read it to some little people. It is just as good as Spoon and I have a new favorite author in Amy Krouse Rosenthal. I highly recommend this book.

This was a cute storyline, although we didn't keep it because it was not as good as some of the others by this author...this is one that would be cute for the first couple of times to read and then would be discarded by the wayside as interest waned...cute pictures and cute ideas, but not one that would be a favourite...
