The Snuggle Sandwich
Random House Canada
Written by Malachy Doyle, illustrated by Gwen Millward
Synopsis from Random House Canada:
In the early morning hurly-burly of breakfast time, no one notices when little Annie’s teddy bear, Ted, falls to the floor and Fred the family dog takes it to snuggle up with in his dog basket. It is only when the morning rush is finally over that Mama and Annie find him. And then comes Annie’s favourite time of day when she, Ted and Mama at last have time for a snuggle all together!
Most family homes are full of noise, hustle, and crazy energy but there are some quiet moments too. That’s what we’re reminded of in The Snuggle Sandwich. As you read the words, page after page, you can feel the noise and energy of the morning building until everyone has left the house. Everyone but mama and Annie. It’s this quiet time they enjoy together, creating a snuggle sandwich.
The whole premise of a snuggle sandwich probably isn’t new in most homes but The Snuggle Sandwich is a great reminder to enjoy those quiet moments around the hustle. This book, yourself and a child and you have your own snuggle sandwich, perfect for reading this story together, in the morning, during the middle of the day, or just before bed.
