The Sandwich Swap by Rania Al Abdullah and Kelly DiPucchio is a picture book that promotes acceptance, respect, and tolerance.
Best friends, Lily and Salma do everything together but disagree because they don’t understand each other’s cultural lunch choices, which leads to a huge food fight.
“Salma and Lily looked at one another from across the rowdy, splattered room. They both felt ashamed of what they saw.” When they taste each other’s food, they realise friendship is more important than their differences.
