About This BookShare lunchtime with Sam and his First-Grade Friends in two rhyming easy-to-read stories that celebrate friendship and childhood. Includes The Lunch Box Surprise and Recess Mess.
The Lunch Box Surprise: All the first-graders are opening their lunch boxes with lip-smacking satisfaction when Sam discovers that his mother has forgotten to pack his lunch: Sam is surprised. Sam is sad. Sam is hungry. Sam is mad! Never fear, Sam's classmates all share their food with him.
Bold, black-outline drawings, simple in composition and bright with colors, focus on the children, their emotions, and, yes, their lunches.
Recess Mess: In this story, first-grade boys and girls go out to play at recess, and Sam learns to spell.
