The Giant Jam Sandwich

"The Giant Jam Sandwich" by John Vernon Lord, Illustrated by Janet Burroway (1972).

One of the nuisances of summer is bees or wasps! In a little town called Itching Down, Bap the Baker came up with a brilliant idea on how to get rid of the wasps! The townspeople worked together to make the biggest jam sandwich ever to trap the wasps.

It's a cute, imaginative story about togetherness. I also love the detailed illustrations. It's an excellent summertime read.
