Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 1, younger for reading aloud. All the first-graders are opening their lunch boxes with lip-smacking satisfaction when Sam discovers that his mother has forgotten to pack his lunch: "Sam is surprised. Sam is sad. Sam is hungry. Sam is mad!" Never fear, Sam's classmates all share their food with him. Bold, black-outline drawings, simple in composition and bright with colors, focus on the children, their emotions, and, yes, their lunches. The simple sentence structure and thumping rhythm will help young children read right through to the book's satisfying conclusion. A good choice for those just beginning to read. Carolyn Phelan

Format: Paperback
The simple words, and rhyme and rythm of the text make this a good choice for kids who are learning to read on their own. They will also appreciate the school dilemma. First we see what each child has brought for lunch. Then Sam discovers that his lunch box is empty - his mother forgot to pack his lunch. All Sam's friends pitch in to provide him with samples from their lunches, and Sam winds up with a feast. It's a nice story about sharing and solving problems.

My six year old really liked this story, and the text was also just the right level. Rhyme and repetition build reading skills while the cute pictures appeal to children. The little boy's dilemma in this story elicited my child's sympathy and then she was delighted with the happy ending.

Boys loved the story, would recommend. Easy reader for kids age appropriate. Recommend for young boy readers, it's outside the super hero ninja box :-)
