How to Make a Peanut Butter Sandwich in 17 Easy Steps by Bambi Edlund

Who doesn’t love a perfectly made sandwich with all of their favourite fillings? And when your friends are involved and the sandwich is made with enthusiasm and love, what could taste better? In Bambi Edlund’s How to Make a Peanut Butter Sandwich in 17 Easy Steps, this is indeed the recipe for the most delicious peanut butter sandwich. Part adventure, part creative cookery, and all fun, Edlund’s host of urban creatures come together in their quest to make a peanut butter sandwich.

How do you make a sandwich without opposable thumbs? It turns out that with a lot of coordination and teamwork, it’s a piece of cake! There’s no Little Red Hen in this story and everyone does their share, often in very unusual ways; picture a clog-wearing donkey stomping peanuts. But how does this ragtag bunch pay for all of their flavourful fixings? Not to worry, for these are responsible creatures and the racoon-turned-busker raises the necessary funds with an all-out juggling routine.

All of the steps are indeed numbered, making this a great book for counting. My favourite is Step 17, where everyone gets to enjoy the fruits of their labour, whether they be handed, pawed, winged or hoofed. If you’re looking for an entertaining story that will also teach your youngster about sequencing, cooperation, and sharing, then you’ll go bananas for this book.

BAMBI EDLUND is an illustrator, writer, and peanut butter sandwich enthusiast living on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia.
