Sam's Sandwich by David Pelham

When I first saw this book, Sam's Sandwich, I thought it was the cutest thing. I'm sure your little one will get a kick out of the format. Fold out pages show what Sam adds to his sister Samantha's sandwich to make it more (or should we say less) appetizing.

I'm sure this will be a favorite in your house just as it is in mine. Sam's being just a little mischievous when he tries to help his sister. You'll find yourself trying to see if you can guess what he'll add next.

Enjoy this fun, rhyming book shaped like a sandwich and illustrated to look like one, too. David, thanks for such a fun experience to share with the little ones in my life.

    Publishers Weekly Review

    Once they feast their eyes on the exterior of this mouth-watering volume, youngsters will be impatient to dig in. The front and back covers are designed--quite convincingly--to resemble pieces of bread, and the spine reveals the neatly layered ingredients of the special snack Sam prepares for his sister. The most delectable morsels, however, are found within--each spread depicts one of the foods the obliging brother adds to his culinary creation. But the realistic renditions of sliced tomato, cucumber, cheese, pastrami, onion and hard-boiled egg fold out to disclose some of Sam's secret--and less appetizing--additions, including a fly, worm, slug, caterpillar and some ants. Youngsters will be too engrossed in Sam's creative sandwich-making to notice that Pelham's singsong rhyme occasionally falters. This cleverly designed book accomplishes what it sets out to do: it serves up a tasty little snack rather than a full-course meal. Ages 4-9. (Sept.)
