    1. So this is how chopsticks came round? I love to read about ideas people come up with and turn into successful inventions. This book displays the history of chopsticks, in a fun way. It also displays how young kids are very intelligent and use their imagination and creativity to make innovation to make a better future.

    2. Cute story about how chopsticks were invented by a little boy who never got enough to eat and didn't want to burn his hands. Even the emperor liked his invention. The family opened a chopstick factory.

    3. How did the Chinese come up with the idea of chopsticks? In this fun story, Kuai, the youngest brother, uses sticks so he can be sure to get enough to eat at dinner. When his family attends a wedding, the brothers take their new Kuai zi along and end up causing trouble. The village elders decide that the new chopsticks are a wonderful idea and that others should make use of them as well. While the story certainly seems like a fictionalized story, the author's note at the end gives some informati [...]

    4. This is such a cute tale of the invention of chopsticks. I wish that there was more language used that reflected the Asian culture in this book, but the illustrations were wonderful. There is a little of the actual history behind chopsticks and where the name came from provided in the back of the book. I think everyone would find it interesting, and it made me wonder about the history of the fork and where that name came from. Also provided in the back of the book is a recipe for Sweet Eight Tre [...]

    5. the cool thing about this book is that it involves you in history and makes you feel like you are a part of it. i checked the back of the book and the author cited his sources and the elements within the text related some what to the history of how and when chopsticks, quick sticks, kuai zi were made. i thought it was funny that one of the brothers was a food hoarder because it reminded me of a southern family dynamic rather than asian but then again maybe i need to learn a bit more. so would i [...]

    6. The Story of Chopsticks (2001) imagines the circumstances surrounding the invention of chopsticks. The three Kang brothers, Ting, Pan, and Kùai, are all hungry, growing boys. Kùai, the youngest, is frustrated by having to wait for food to cool down until it was safe to eat with your fingers. A few twigs later, he invents the first chopsticks! But when the boys bring their new invention to a wedding feast, they find themselves at odds with the elders. My students perform a Readers' Theater vers [...]

    7. In this book, the author tells stories about the Chinese culture. Instead of representing a cliche view of Chinese people, the author also depicts the characters in the story as realistic and non-stereotypical. Children will have the opportunity to educate themselves about the Chinese culture by entering a world that is different from their own. *Fiction

    8. This story is great to read with children who are learning about different cultures and their customs. The story is about a boy who began using twigs because his food was too hot and he couldn't touch it without burning his fingers. Then it will be became something everyone began doing.

    9. Not quite sure how accurate this story is but it is a cute story none the less. It's a creative story of the origin of chopsticks. It explains how the youngest of three Chinese boys creates quick sticks so he does not go hungry waiting on the food to cool and being too slow.

    11. Wonderful story of how a young boy came into a simplistic invention. I think my favorite part of this book was the semi-abstract illustrations that help bring the story to life.(less)

    12. The cut-paper technique that Yong Sheng Xuan uses in this series of books, is a nice alternative to those used in all other children's literature, as are the backstory notes included at the end.
