We read The Last Day of School by Louise Borden the night before I packed Boogs' last lunch of 4th grade. Boogs asked me to pack a lunch with "a little bit of charm" for his last 4th grade lunch. In the lunchbox: provolone clock on top of ham sandwich, sunflower seeds, Pringles, berries, salad, and yogurt.
Amazon. In this book, Fudge and Einstein have an adventure in Arizona. Boogs thought it was a cute story. In the lunchbox: Fudge and Einstein drawn on cheese on top of a grilled cheese sandwich, ferret spelled with Cheez-It Scrabble crackers, a rattlesnake drawn on a pineapple fruit cup, marshmallow with a sun, and a salad.
Love and Roast Chicken: A Trickster Tale From the Andes Mountains by Barbara Knutson
I saw this book in my school's library and had to bring it home to read to Boogs. In this story, a little guinea pig outsmarted a hungry fox three times. The guinea pig also tricked an alfalfa farmer into letting him eat as much alfalfa as his stomach could hold. In the lunchbox: sandwich with fox hiding from the fire in a cave, guinea pig drawn on marshmallow, salad, oranges, and Chex Mix.
Here are some regular lunches I sent to school with Boogs. I love packing his lunch in my Easy Lunchboxes. You can find the lunchboxes HERE.
Boogs and I read all three of James Patterson's Treasure Hunter books. They tell about a family of four children who are searching for their missing parents. Along the way, the kids work together to solve many problems. Boogs and I both enjoyed reading this series.

This Wacky Wednesday lunch was made for Dr. Seuss' Birthday.
