artsy-fartsy mama: The Sandwich Witch

The Sandwich Witch

My daughter loves having books read to her and is now learning to read. She loves going to the library and choosing new books to read, and it has been fun watching her want to learn to do it herself. I am planning on homeschooling with her, and am so grateful to find books that combine both a fun story and a way to learn something new.

The Sandwich Witch children's book

Recently, I was introduced to a new book called "The Sandwich Witch". It's a children's book (recommended for ages 4-8, but I think any kids would enjoy it), written in a fun way to help teach children the importance of a eating a well-balanced diet so they can be healthy and strong. A few of my talented designer friends from my pre-working days illustrated the book, so I knew I had to have it for myself. The author, Lee McNeil, signed a copy just for Zoey. She was so excited to get "happy mail" just for herself and thought it was so cool to have her name written inside the cover!

She immediately sat on the couch with the book and flipped through the pages. I read it through to her once, then we talked about the importance of eating healthy and making good choices when it comes to snacks and treats. I catch her reading the book (in her own words) to herself all the time, and she knows what's happening in the story because of the thought-out illustrations.

Lunch with The Sandwich Witch

To help her learn a little more about healthy eating, I decided I would let her help make lunch. Of course, the Sandwich Witch came up in conversation, so we made a turkey and cheese sandwich and cut it out with a witch shaped cookie cutter. Zoey was a little worried that the Sandwich Witch was going to steal it. We talked about what kind of healthy snacks could go with the sandwich, and she picked strawberries. It's so fun to see how much she has learned, and hopefully I can continue to teach her to make healthy habits as she grows.
