The rich man laughed aloud. "You had only two spoons! And you bought a third one for me to eat with! Why, I have so many spoons I could us a different one each day of the year if I wished to." That's how the rich man mocked the poor man in this classic from master storyteller Joe Hayes and illustrator Rebecca Leer. In this lovely New Mexico folktale, a rich man tries to prove his wealth to his poor neighbors by using a new spoon for every bite.
