Smiling Over Silverware

I knew I would stumble across a 2010 book that would make me smile.  (And hopefully you, too, if you read it.)

 His mom is a spoon and his dad is a fork.  Where does this little spork fit in?

Better yet, read Spoon, a funny book about being grateful for who you are. I love this one.

If I ever create a list of my favorite books that personify inanimate objects, these two would make that list!  I assigned "life" to nearly everything in my world when I was a kid, from the shampoo bottles to my playing cards.  They all had personalities, and back stories, and thoughts and wishes.

So why not eating utensils?
