Chopsticks, by Amy Drouse Rosenthal

Published May 22, 2013 by Dagmar

chopsticks A pair of chopsticks have been friends forever; in fact, they are inseparable, until one day while karate chopping a spear of asparagus, one chopstick breaks.  He is “whisked” away to recuperate.  His chopstick friend never leaves his sick friend’s side until one day, the hurt chopstick urges his best friend to venture out alone, as a single chopstick.  Unsure of himself, the healthy chopstick begins to find new things to do.  He learns that he can test muffins to see if they’re done, play pick up sticks with a set of pick up sticks, direct a band and pole vault over cookbooks.  In fact, he becomes stronger without his best friend.  Then, when his best friend has healed, they realize that, together, they have so many new things to share.  Knife called for a “toast”.  This book has the double entre that older readers just love.  It’s a story of friendship – a funny one.  Great illustrations by Scott Magoon.  Enjoy!
