Spork by Kyo Maclear, Isabelle Arsenault

Spork is half spoon and half fork, as a result he feel as if he doesn’t quite being on the silverware drawer. One day, a baby arrived and there wasn’t a utensil for him to be fed with, but the spork turned out to be just what he needed to be fed.  The story relates to the positve portrayal of “mixed-race” character, which is so wonderful. 

Summary and rating of 4.5
The great use of words to provide a great storytelling experience, with the mixed-media illustrations which bring the readers into the story.  This book provides teachers and parents with a great conversation start on topics of race, difference, and acceptance.  This would be a great book to use during the African American and Mexican American month.  This is a Kindle Edition.
