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.

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.

I had this book at my grandmothers house when I was little and never forgot it. When I had my children I always thought of this and how much fun I had reading it! After much searching at gradma's house and online I finally found this here on amazon. It took a long time for it to actually become available (though Amazon's communication during the wait was great) but when it came it was exactly as I remembered and perfectly hilarious for my kiddos!

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.

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!

I bought this because I loved when I was a kid & thought that my little brothers would love it as well ( I was right ). The story is very funny & the book itself is just as I remembered it.I would recommend this one.

I have used this book with kids from ages 3-12 for several years to teach all kinds of concepts. I purchased this as a gift for a 4-year-old nephew. He loved trying to guess what the "surprises" Sam left in the sandwich for his sister & of course LOVED un-doing the flaps to find the surprises. He asked to have it read again immediately. He carried the book with him throughout the house and when he'd discovered he'd left it in another room again, he'd look for "Sam's Sandwich" until he;d found it. I'd recommend this book to anyone for kids from ages 3-9. If you're a teacher, you can use it from preschool through 5th or 6th grade to teach many concepts. Both girls & boys love this book.

My sister got this book for my son who is now 22 years old. He loved it, so I bought it for my great nieces. They both love it too. It's adorable and fun for both kids and adults. You won't regret it - it's one of those books that will never be forgotten and they will thank you!
