Description

This charming story presents a new way for young children to understand how to creatively embrace who they are, no matter what others think. Carla’s lunch box is filled with odd delights like the Olive, Pickle and Green Bean Sandwich, the Banana-Cottage-Cheese Delight, and the unforgettable Chopped Liver, Potato Chips, and Cucumber Combo. To Carla, they are delicious and creative lunches, but her teasing classmates are unconvinced and abandon her at the lunch table to eat her bizarre sandwiches alone. One day, however, tables turn when Buster—the worst tease of all—forgets his lunch on the day of the picnic and Carla thoughtfully offers him her extra sandwich. Her own spirited nature helps Carla teach her classmates that "unusual" can actually be good. Lively illustrations help showcase the book's messages of acceptance, tolerance, individuality, and creativity, and the funny plot and authentic dialogue are sure to make this tale a favorite among elementary school children. Carla's creative sandwich solutions provide young chefs-to-be with the inspiration to create sandwich masterpieces of their own.

    Carla’s Sandwich is a book about a little girl named Carla who brings weird and different sandwiches to school. None of the other students want to sit with her at lunch because they think her sandwiches are weird. One day the class takes a fieldtrip to a local park for lunch. The class bully forgot his sandwich and is starving. He asks the other students in the class to share their sandwiches, but all the students say no except Carla. Finally, the bully is so hungry he agrees to eat Carla’s weird sandwich. After a few bites he learns the sandwich is actually good and not weird. Soon the whole class wants to try Carla’s sandwich. Carla had brought extra sandwiches that day and shared them with the class. The class decides they should have weird sandwich day. The next day all the students bring in weird sandwiches, except Carla, she brings peanut butter and jelly. Carla brings a normal sandwich so she is still different.
