This is an ever moving story about a boy named Scotty who likes to eat his food while walking around the house. His Mother is easy going and would rather not say no to Scotty, but also is concerned about the crumbs he drops as he travels around with his food. Scotty's Mom uses her imagination, to peak Scotty's imagination. The two of them come to a solution based solely on Scotty's decision through his imaginary experiences. In the end, Scotty finds the perfect place to eat his food.
Scotty imagines himself outside with his very large peanut butter sandwich. He meets a mailman, a neighbor, a hairy dog, a grandma, a gentle man in a hat, and many other people who all have the same thing in common; they are hungry!

The pictures in this book are vividly enticing. They jump off the page and grab attention. I think any child would be thrilled to read these pages written by Linda Derkez, and gaze upon the artwork of David Fielding; over and over again. This book could very well become a favorite in a child's library.

I give this book ***** for color, and for story content. The mother in this story found a way to heighten her child's reasoning without being cross or negative; a lesson to be learned for sure.

This book was reviewed by Susan Hornbach, author of children's literature.

Using the what if scenario to her advantage, Mom shares examples of what may happen to Scotty's sandwich during his travels beyond the confines of their home. What ensues is a hilarious imagined adventure.

What becomes of Scotty and his tendency to wander while eating? Does he lose sight of satisfying his hunger with his adventures? Whether you like peanut butter or not the youngest of readers will enjoy the antics of Scotty and the stories that pop out of the imagination. David Fielding's eye catching and humorous illustrations brings the story of One Large Peanut Butter Sandwich To Go to life.

In One Large Peanut Butter Sandwich to Go, Linda Derkez has written a book parents and teachers will happily appreciate. Scotty has a bad habit of walking around with his food and leaving crumbs everywhere. Mom wants to teach him it's best to eat at the table, and tries a new strategy. When he asks if he can walk with his peanut butter sandwich, she asks him where he'll take it. Then she conjures up images of every person along the way wanting a bite of Scotty's sandwich. He finally decides to eat it at the table -- so he can have it all to himself.

David Fielding's art illustrates Linda Derkez's story in an appealing "crayon" style that children will love. Scotty's crumb-spilling days end because of Mom's clever "what if" suggestions to change his behavior. Paired with David Fielding's vibrant pictures, we see what Scotty imagines will happen when he walks his sandwich to Dad's clinic.

This is a fun story that kids will want to see and hear again and again. The lesson Mom wants to teach Scotty will come across loud and clear. Thanks to Linda Derkez and David Fielding for a fun and colorful story.
