    Fantastic message - fun read

    Has a positive message of individuality without any of the corniness so often found in kids books. Pleasure to read - sophisticated age appropriate writing. Fantastic illustrations as well. My kids loved it - as did I. Hope this author has more works up her sleeve.

    Great read and moral

    Carla has a great imagination. She enjoys creating unique sandwiches for her school lunches. When trouble rises and her lunches turn into a source of teasing, Carla keeps her chin up and continues to eat her fascinating sandwiches all the while maintaining her kindness to her friends. Coupled with adorable illustrations, this is a wonderful story for all children to enjoy. Even adults will identify with Carla. ¿Carla¿s Sandwich¿ shows children how they do not need to be like others by showing the heroine being strong as an individual. With so many food allergies, people with different incomes, and others who eat with religious or ethical restrictions, ¿Carla¿s Sandwich¿ is a winner!

    A delightful read

    Carla¿s Sandwich is a great book that children will surely love! With its imaginative text by Debbie Herman, and its vivid and bright illustrations by Sheila Bailey, no child will be disappointed as they turn each page to discover which weird and wonderful concoctions Carla will be eating that day for her school lunch. This book contains a story of being different ¿ and you feel a little sorry for Carla as the other children isolate her because she brings in such unusual combinations of sandwiches to eat, like sardine and mustard with sunflower seeds. But one day, another boy forgets his lunch, and when his hunger gets the better of him, he reluctantly turns to Carla to beg a spare from her. He does, of course, find the offering delicious, and the other children change their minds about constitutes an `acceptable¿ sandwich. Fantastic, colourful and detailed pictures, with an inspiring storyline for children aged four to eight years old, this book was a delight to read and is thoroughly recommended.

    LOVED by my nephew, cousin, and schoolteacher aunt!!

    I originally bought this book for my nephew who LOVES it, recites it by heart to anyone who will listen, and wants to have it by his side whenever he eats a sandwich. I then bought it for my cousin, who needed the book's help to encourage her four-year-son to start eating sandwiches. I got another copy for my aunt who teaches first grade, who is reading the book with her class and making sandwiches afterwards! Everyone loves the book and is recommending it to their friends. Especially my nephew!
