Little Spoon by Sara Barnard is a beautiful story about Walks With A Stumble who walks with a stumble and dreams of being a famous chef one day. He drops everything that he carries because of his stumble. Once he drops their winter supplies and that brings about a change and his mother names him Little Spoon.
The story has a lovely message woven into it that adds to the depth of the story. It tells the reader no matter what problems you have in life, sometimes your own experiences can bring about positive changes in your life. And those changes can bring about a change in your attitude. I liked the character of Walks With A Stumble's mother. She supports the child, irrespective of whatever he does, and finally her love and confidence in him triumphs, which sees the emergence of a new chef, Little Spoon.
Life is what you make of it and your attitude determines how you bring about the changes in your life. The never-say-die attitude of Walks With A Stumble is something that can teach others. Children's stories with a message and a concept make a good read because they inspire and motivate young readers in many ways.
The illustrations add to the beauty of the story. They are emotive and expressive and they give the characters a life. It is a good book to read aloud and as a bedtime story.
