A great book for kids and really fun for adults as well.

My daughter loved this book 15+ years ago, so I ordered it again and read it to my Kindergarten, first graders and second graders in the library.

The book is shaped like a sandwich and each page is an ingredient (lettuce, tomatoes, eggs....) which open with flaps to show the surprise.

Both my boys have enjoyed this book. My oldest is 12 and now loves to read it to his 5 yr old brother. The book is not only easy to read, but also interactive and fun. This book is sure to become every childs favorite.

Sam's makes his sister a special sandwich by slipping in little surprises such as snails and caterpillars. The book is shaped like a sandwich and each page is an ingredient (lettuce, tomatoes, eggs....) which open with flaps to show the surprise. My first graders think this book is hilarious and want me to read it practically on a daily basis.

Sam's Sandwich is a delightful book about a boy who creates a sandwich for his sister(unknowingly to her) using unusual ingredients such as ants and other bugs. The book is written in rhyme with lift-up flaps revealing the unusual ingredients at the end to each stanza of the rhyme. Children love to read the book, again and again, screaming..."Ohhh...and aahh and ick". There is no better review by a child than "READ IT AGAIN!" This is a wonderful book to help children with rhyme and a fun, fun book for the whole family.

I use this book in my Kindergarten/1st grade curriculum. The kids LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book! I also use Carla's Sandwich in this lesson block, teaching friendship, and being true to yourself even when others make fun of you.
We make our own books with fold outs. I made a template of lined paper in the shapes of bread slices,lunch meat slices, tomato slices and lettuce. Make them big because little ones are still writing fairly large. I print these out on colored paper. The kids write their own stories using rhyming words of any kind! It makes a great author's day activity and the kids love writing their own books. Just be careful to "edit" before the book goes to print! Kids will rhyme just about everything!

I just finished reading this one for the bizillionth time to my fourth son, who is six. All four of my boys have loved this book, especially between ages 5-9. The illustrations are super real, and the popups are cleverly engineered in descending layers of a sandwich. My boys love to squeal at each disgusting tiny vermin that has been added to the sandwich Sam is making for his annoying sis. We have Sam's Snack, and Sam's Cake, also, but this is our favorite.

This book has been in my personal library for a long time. I have been using it ever since. I have used it in speech therapy with kids working on /s/ sounds. Sam's Sandwich is full of /s/ and /s/ blend words. There are about 10 initial position /s/ words and about 15 /s/ blend words. As an added bonus, each page contains rhyming words and great adjectives. This book would probably work best for kids Pre-K through 3rd grade as far as interest level. The kids will love guessing what comes next. This book is actually built like a sandwich and each page is one of the ingredients (lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, onions, etc). Sam, the main character, is making a sandwich for his sister and hides different bugs and slimy critters in each layer. The kids get to guess what he has hidden and the pages fold out to reveal it. I know.... sounds creepy! But the kids get a huge kick out of it!

This is a GREAT read aloud story for elementary age kids. It teaches rhyming, prediction, advanced vocabulary, etc... I attended a Readers Workshop for struggling readers a couple years ago and they showed us how to shred some paper in your hands before you read the story and at the end, after you've "unfolded" the story, pretend to take a bite. After a few chews, cough into your hand blowing shredded paper all over the kids. I wasn't sure how that would go over on a live audience so I tried it out on my son's 4th grade class... They LOVED it and asked me to do it again! I ordered this book to present to the teacher and class ~ the kids will be able to take it home and share it with their families. Thumbs up!

This book is an absolute delight to children. They scream with laughter even at the 100th reading.
