A sandwich-shaped, foldout book, Sam?s Sandwich invites young readers to peel back the lettuce, tomato, and other ingredients to discover Sam?s rhyming, crawling surprises.

Love this book! Sam's mischievous brother helps her make a sandwich, but slips all sorts of creepy crawlies in along the way. The book is shaped like a sandwich and the pages are shaped like all sorts of sandwich fillers (cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc.) with flaps to lift. The rhyming text makes it fun for kids to guess what is hidden under the flaps on each page. My kids love the "gross" aspect of this book.
I remember this book from third grade. I did not see it again until last year in one of my methods classes. This story is so great. Sneaky little brother, pull out pages, and a mess of a sandwich. I would love to use this book to inspire children to write their own gross sandwich story!
