StoryWalk: The Bear Ate Your Sandwich

Bushwick Library

At select Brooklyn Public Library locations, we are posting StoryWalks® outdoors! StoryWalks® are picture books displayed outside to encourage reading and walking. We will be posting them on fences at select libraries and partner sites. Each book has prompts to encourage family discussion and interaction!

At the Bushwick Library, The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach (Alfred A. Knopf, 2015) is currently on display. When a sandwich goes missing, it seems that a bear is the unlikely culprit! 

Check out the book! 

Watch Julia Sarcone-Roach share a bit about the book here...

Activities for Families

Talking with parents and caregivers is how children develop extensive vocabulary and background knowledge that will help them become good readers and writers, but sometimes we all need conversation starters. Ask your child to help you create a fantasy sandwich with your favorite foods: Mango, banana, peanut butter, grilled cheese, anyone? 

Create a tall tale like the one in this book. The characters in tall tales have larger than life personalities and can perform outrageous feats of strength (kind of like superheroes). Try modeling your characters on neighborhood animals and birds or invent magical creatures and set your story at a favorite playground or park.
