Just how lucky you are September 7, 2010

Filed under: Picture Books — Kristi @ 9:02 pm

You know, Spoon–I wonder if you realize just how lucky you are. Your friends will never know the joy of diving headfirst into a bowl of ice cream. They’ll never know what it feels like to clink against the side ofย a cereal bowl. They’ll never be able to twirl around in a mug, or relax in a hot cup of tea. (from Spoon by Amy Krouse Rosenthal)

If you haven’t seen this delightful picture book yet, you really should check it out. It’s all about wishing you had someone else’s life, never knowing someone else wishes he had yours. And it’s super cute to boot. Gotta love Amy Krouse Rosenthal.

I have to say, I’m kind of disappointed that Shanna was the only one who commented on yesterday’s post. Nobody else could think of something to say to the stars? Nobody?…Beuler?….Beuler?

Oh, well, to sweeten the bitterness of a single comment day, I think we have an exciting new contributer to add to the blog. Soon and very soon you will be seeing some posts on this site by an award winning children’s book author. Keep reading! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m sorry, Kristi, but my imagination refused to wake-up, but I’ve got to say I loved Shanna’s thoughts!

    I’ve never thought about how wonderful it must be to be a spoon. I would love to dive headfirst into a bowl of ice cream and twirl around in a mug of cocoa or hot tea! mmm pure bliss! It is so easy at times to believe the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, thanks for this reminder.

    Oooh! How exciting! Unless…didn’t you win something for Wolves I Have Known? Are you talking about yourself? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Cute…so cute. There are lots of great things about being a spoon. I mean heck…you get to spend all day spooning with other spoons. Cheers to spooning. ๐Ÿ˜€

      Lisa, you have got to read Spoon. They do include spooning as one of the wonderful things spoons get to do. It’s so cute!
