From the creators of Skinnamarink comes another picture book based on the classic sandwich song made famous by this beloved trio of children’s entertainers.
First you dig the peanuts and you dig ’em, you dig ’em,
you dig ’em, dig ’em, dig ’em.
Peanut, peanut butter, JELLY!
Sharon, Lois & Bram invite readers to join them on an adventure to a magical place where a diverse group of animals and children come together to create the most delicious of snacks: a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!
Sharon, Lois & Bram’s Peanut Butter and Jelly takes me down memory lane and made me feel nostalgic.
A classic song that I loved singing with my little sister growing up. I recall doing all the actions and we would giggle together as we were having the time of our lives. Even though we are seven years apart, for that moment we were the same age. I guess that is what happens in a moment of bliss.
Now I can share this song with my daughter and my sister can also share it with her daughter. Amazing how childhood fond memories can be passed down to the next generation through a form of a book.
For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this book 5 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches out of 5! A whimsical story of making peanut butter and jelly sandwich that will everyone on their feet to dance. A great addition to children’s literature that allows you to share a piece of your own childhood with your children.
You will fall in love all over again with Peanut Butter and Jelly and the song will be stuck in your mind but in a good way. 🙂 If you are not familiar with the song, you will want to as it is that good. The illustrations in the book are so well done that it adds life to the story and lyrics. It has been our favorite book to read and a great one to gift to a little one heading back to school!
