In One Large Peanut Butter Sandwich to Go, Linda Derkez has written a book parents and teachers will happily appreciate. Scotty has a bad habit of walking around with his food and leaving crumbs everywhere. Mom wants to teach him it’s best to eat at the table, and tries a new strategy. When he asks if he can walk with his peanut butter sandwich, she asks him where he’ll take it. Then she conjures up images of every person along the way wanting a bite of Scotty’s sandwich. He finally decides to eat it at the table -- so he can have it all to himself.
David Fielding’s art illustrates Linda Derkez’s story in an appealing “crayon” style that children will love. Scotty’s crumb-spilling days end because of Mom’s clever “what if” suggestions to change his behavior. Paired with David Fielding’s vibrant pictures, we see what Scotty imagines will happen when he walks his sandwich to Dad’s clinic.
This is a fun story that kids will want to see and hear again and again. The lesson Mom wants to teach Scotty will come across loud and clear. Thanks to Linda Derkez and David Fielding for a fun and colorful story.
