"Hold your chopsticks this way!" says mama.
"No that way!" says baba.
"Wait," Maggie replies, "I'll figure out my own way".
What's your way reader?

Maggie is frustrated trying to learn to use her chopsticks as she sits around the dinner table getting advice from her large family. It seems that everyone has an opinion about exactly the right way to hold chopsticks; will Maggie ever develop a style that is just right for her? This lyrical, beautifully illustrated story offers a glimpse into how one young child finds her own voice within her multigenerational family.

Maggie has her own unique personality - which is what this picture book supports

I know this feeling; everyone's hands are different though, so there are many ways to hold chopsticks
