I Can Eat with Chopsticks: A Tale of Chopsticks and How They Became a Pair

Lin Xin

This beautifully illustrated bilingual Chinese and English book shares the light hearted story of how chopsticks became the main utensil of the Chinese People.

One day Xiao Mo brought home a piece of bamboo stick that she picked up from the forest, and she had no idea that one day it would eventually become a symbol for her culture. When her two bamboo sticks started working together, they were able to cut buns into halves, pick up vegetables and do many other chores. Then with the help of Xiao Mo's dad, the bamboo sticks got a whole new look, and over time, they became today's well-known chopsticks!
