‘Lambwich’ Snack | ‘In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb’ Book


In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb by Marion Dane Bauer (affiliate)
It’s spring! (YAY!) So, we’ve been focusing on talking about some weather changes and spring things in homeschool. I’ve been talking to my daughter about the “In like a lion, out like a lamb” saying. (Which can be hard to grasp for kids.) However, we found this fantastic book called, In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb by Marion Dane Bauer.

The illustrations for this book are really colorful and animated and do a great job of showing kids the different between the lion and lamb concept. In the story, the lion bursts through the door in a home and leaves yucky, muddy footprints all over. He continues to wreak havoc until the lamb comes in (I won’t ruin the surprise on how she gets there) and brings with her flowers, sunshine and spring.

This is a great recipe from FamilyFun Magazine. Pair the book up with these fun “lamwiches”and your kids will love this cook-and-book project!
