Fun Sandwich Books


Hi kids! Here are some fun sandwich books or should I say fun books about sandwiches. We've added some books that even big people will love to read. So mom, dad, auntie, uncle, grandma, and grandpa, you're welcome to read them as well. We're sure you'll have just as much fun reading them as your little ones will have fun listening to them.

Most of these we found while looking for sandwich cookbooks. You can find them here. They have actual recipes and tips for making great sandwiches.

Each of the books on this list has something to do with bread and fillings or something to do with sandwiches. So have fun working your way through the list. You can check them out the next time you're at the library. Or you can ask your parents to buy them from the book store so you'll have your own fun sandwich books to read whenever you like.

If you have a tablet, you may even find a few to read on your Kindle or iPad. And if you ever come across a fun book about sandwiches, that's not on our list, why not fill in the form below to share them with us.
