Carla’s Sandwich

This charming story presents a new way for young children to understand how to creatively embrace who they are, no matter what others think. Carla’s lunch box is filled with odd delights like the Olive, Pickle and Green Bean Sandwich, the Banana-Cottage-Cheese Delight, and the unforgettable Chopped Liver, Potato Chips, and Cucumber Combo. They are delicious and creative lunches to Carla, but her teasing classmates are unconvinced and abandon her at the lunch table to eat her bizarre sandwiches alone.
