What a delightful book! Alison Deering has released a cookbook, Sandwiches!: More Than You've Ever Wanted to Know About Making and Eating America's Favorite Food, that has everything kids (and culinary challenged adults) need to make a hearty and delicious sandwich meal. While this book is aimed at kids, adults will find that it has great sandwich ideas and information that appeals to them too.

For this book, Deering has teamed up with art director, Bob Lentz, who has previously designed and illustrated several children’s books. He has certainly outdone himself here, and his illustrations will have great appeal to everyone. Due to his excellent illustrations, this book is colorful and fun.

In a time when many kids subsist on fast food, frozen dinners, and pure junk, here is a book that actually shows them how to make a simple sandwich. The book has charming illustrations that show step-by-step how to make mouthwatering sandwiches, as well as simple dressings and toppings. There is a good variety of sandwiches that will appeal to not only kids, but also adults.

One of the best parts of this book is that Deering gives the history of many of the sandwiches. The trivia is fun, and who knows, maybe that information will prove useful somewhere down the road. Kids will be able to not only make a fabulous sandwich, but also speak intelligently about it.

If there’s a child between the ages of 9 and 13 in your life, this fun book will make a great gift. If not, adults may also want to add it to their cookbook collection for great, easy sandwich ideas and the entertaining trivia.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
