Spork feels bad about himself because he is different from all the other silverware. It is rare for spoons and forks to make and have someone like the spork. He doesn’t feel like he fits in anywhere and tries to change himself. When he’s more like a spoon, the forks don’t like him. When he’s more like a fork, the spoons don’t like him. In the end, he realizes he is a perfect match for a baby and its food. I would recommend this book to children because it teaches self acceptance, and the different kinds of silverware hint at diversity. They may also enjoy hearing the story from the spork’s point of view. I enjoyed this book because I like how the spork was able to feel useful in the end and feel like he had a purpose.

Author Kyo Maclear was the daughter of a British father and Japanese mother; her family background was what prompted her to write the picture book Spork. Spork's mother is a spoon, and his father is a fork, which causes him to stick out among all of the other cutlery in the kitchen. "Mixing was uncommon." Spork then decided that life would be easier if he were just one utensil and not two, so he attempts to change who he is in hopes of being chosen for the dinner table. After many failed attempts and feeling a loss sense of purpose, Spork is finally selected by the "messy thing" for dinnertime. The "messy thing" needed something that was both fork and spoon, which made Spork the perfect fit. I love the meaning behind the author's words and believe it is a fun and relatable read for students. I would use this book when introducing or teaching "theme" to my fourth or fifth grade English class; the theme of a story is the moral lesson or message from the text, and the theme from Spork is about everyone having a significant purpose in life. One thing I noticed while reading the story, is that the author has specific words or phrases bolded on each page that correlate with the theme of the story. After reading Spork, I responded quite well to the central message of the story and felt like even though I differ from my peers, I am just as important and capable as anyone else. ( )

Spork is "just a bit round. just a bit pointy. just right"
I loved this cute story and the illustration of adorable Spork!

This is a book dealing with multi-race or multi-ethnic families. In this book they use cutlery to present this notion. Spork has part of his mom, a spoon, and his dad, a fork. He is never picked when someone sets the table, he never gets the bubble bath after a meal and he is shunned by both the spoons and the forks. This story highlights that there is a place in the world for everyone. You just have to find it. Luckily for Spork, when neither the forks or spoons could handle the baby, he got the chance to show what he could do. The illustrations are detailed but with little colour. The expressions on some of the cutlery is scary at times, but Spork is quite adorable. I think it is important to help children explore how we are all different, but I am not sure if they will get the multi-race aspect from this book. This story could be used in various discussions such as all families are different, bullying by omission, finding your purpose and strengths, be true to yourself and so on. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via netgalley. ( )

This is such a nice book to teachyour child about individuality, inclusivity and acceptance. The illustrations were also cute. I just wished it was a bit more colorful. ( )
