The Giant Jam Sandwich
Lord, John Vernon. 1972. The Giant Jam Sandwich. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Board Book.
This one is a board book of a classic children's picture book, The Giant Jam Sandwich, maybe you remember it from your own childhood. Originally published in 1972, the story is just as fun as ever. Here's how this one goes, the town of Itching Down has a wasp problem. And they're looking for a BIG solution. What better way to cure the wasp problem than to bake a HUGE loaf of bread, trick the wasps out with a large "picnic," and trap the wasps in the oh-so-tempting strawberry jam? So that's what they do. Working all together as a team, this town solves its problem in a very creative way.
