Book Talk Tuesday – The Giant Jam Sandwich


Hi friends!  I hope you are having a lovely week.  Today I wanted to share a book that I adored as a kid.  It was “that” book.   You know the one the you check out weekly from your library.

Let me introduce The Giant Jam Sandwich by John Vernon Lord. Have you ever heard of Itching Down, where 3 million wasps flew into town?  If you haven’t be sure to check it out!


It’s a fun rhyming story that tells how a town gets rids of their wasp problem in a very creative, sticky way.  I loved it as a kid and it was one of the first books I bought when I became a teacher.

Do you have a favorite childhood book that you read to your each?


  1. I have never read this book before but it sounds very cute! I hate wasps though! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  2. Oh, this is one of my absolute favorites! I now have 2 copies: the hardcover one I got in my Scholastic Book Order when I was 7;) and a paperback one that I bought for my class library a few years ago. Thanks for reminding me about it! Great choice. Come check out my favorite kid-lit book at my blog: SweetSchoolMoments
