Summary: There are two chopsticks who are best friends and do everything together. One day, one chopstick gets hurt and has to stay in bed for a while. The healthy chopstick is such a good friend and decides to stay with his hurt friend until he is better. His friend tells him to go have fun, he will stay in bed and be okay by himself. So, reluctantly, he leaves and tries new activities. When the other chopstick gets better, they found all kinds of new activities they could do together. The story was cute and was easy to connect with. Most kids have good friends they spend a lot of time with, and the book had a good lesson because it teaches kids they can spend time alone (or with other friends) and still have fun and be friends with their best friend.

age: primary - The story is too long to read to nursey ages, but it is too simple and could be boring for intermediate readers. With help, or being read to, primary readers would enjoy this book.

artistic element: The pictures were great. It was obvious what everything was supposed to be there was enough to stop and look at it before continuing to read. The pictures were cute, not too realistic, but it was still easy to know what everything was.

recommendation: I think this is a good book for people to read. I recommend this book because it was fun to read. The pictures were interesting and cute. There were puns and jokes scattered throughout the book and I think parents could have a good time reading this with a child.
