Spork

cover art of sporkWhat it is

A picture book about a spork who has a spoon and fork as parents and doesn’t feel like he fits in with the other dishes.

Why I read it

I was browsing bookstores in Vernon (waiting for a library meeting, since there aren’t buses very often from SA) and I came across it in a display.

Why it is awesome

  • A story about not fitting in
  • A story about being of mixed heritage
  • Adorable art
  • Not too much text, kid friendly
  • A happy ending that the kids will enjoy

Who will like it

  • 4-6 year olds
  • Librarians and teachers
  • Parents of children who are of mixed race or visibly different from their peers.
