When the little red hen wanted to bake bread, no one wanted to help her. Not so with children! Kids love to help in the kitchen, especially when it is time to lick the spoon! In Carla’s Sandwich, Carla loves to make her own lunch, even if her recipes sound weird to everyone else. (Potato chips on a sandwich? Yes, please!) When her friend at school forgets his lunch, Carla comes to his rescue, showing him that sometimes, you just have to trust the cook and try something new! You can watch Carl’s story with your little cook right now, read to you by Allison Janney. More stories follow about kids in the kitchen, cafeteria, restaurant, or bakery.
