His mum is a spoon. His dad is a fork. And he's a bit of both. He's Spork! Spork sticks out in the regimented world of the cutlery drawer. The spoons think he's too pointy, while the forks find him too round. He never gets chosen to be at the table at mealtimes until one day a very messy ? thing arrives in the kitchen who has never heard of cutlery customs. Will Spork finally find his place at the table? This "multi-cutlery" tale is a humorous and lively commentary on individuality and tolerance. Its high-spirited illustrations capture the experience and emotions of anyone who has ever wondered about their place in the world.

Have you ever felt like you just dont belong? No matter what you do, you just dont fit in? Well, that is how Spork feels; half spoon, half fork, he has a hard time being accepted by others in his kitchen. He tries to look more spoonish and more forkish but neither side accepts him. One day, a messy thing with no table manners arrives in his kitchen, and Spork finally finds his purpose.

This is a delightful story that celebrates differences, and shows that everyone, no matter if their parents are a spoon and a fork, can find their place. If you want to teach your children tolerance and acceptance this is a great place to start. Use this book in your classroom as a jumping off point for discussion.

Add this one to your collection because I think we all have a little bit of Spork in us.
