One of the hardest things about changing schools is having to change reading buddies. I miss my old friends- the people who would stop by my room or office with a book in hand. I'm starting, though, to develop new reading friends. This week, one of my new reading friends brought me SPOON, a book by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, an author I really love.

SPOON is the story of a little spoon, who lives in the silverware drawer with his mama and daddy. One day he decides he is not happy being a spoon, he would rather be a knife, or a fork, or a pair of chopsticks. His mama and his friends, knife, fork, and chopsticks remind him that everyone has their own unique and special talents. A sweet little book, with lots of clever word play, perfect for a beginning of the year "Me Unit."
