Maggie’s Chopsticks by Alan Woo is a beautiful picture book that tells the story of young Maggie, the only one in her family who is incapable of holding her chopsticks correctly. As Maggie struggles to match the mastery of her grandmother and the grace of her older sister, we are enveloped in the tastes, smells, sights, and sounds of a family meal. Woo’s sparse and poetic language combined with Isabelle Malenfant’s beautiful illustrations create the perfect book to read with your family during the Lunar New Year. (Submitted by Meghan S.).
