After hearing this book ONCE in her Kindermusik class, my 2 1/2 year old had it memorized and began to ask for it every day. Needless to say - here we are at buying it!

Such a cute and well illustrated book. Full of colors and rhyming words. This book is about two children that try to make a table size Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwich. It could inform children the different steps in taking to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. This could be a book to read when teaching rhyming, and specific directions (you do this, then this, and so on).

This poem is a great example of how poetry can be used to teach rhythm, patterns, new words, etc. While this poem does not have a huge message, it does teach student the sequence of how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Students will enjoy the clapping patterns that can accompany this poem as well.
