Monday, Monday

Here’s a book that shares an aspect of the modern family: When we must go off to our work-a-day lives each week. Monday is One Day is a welcome addition to the library of bedtime read-aloud classics for busy families of all types.

Arthur A. Levine, noted publisher (the Harry Potter series), editor (Goodnight Gorilla, Officer Buckle & Gloria) and children’s book author, was inspired by his own experience as parent to write a book that addresses workday separation. Monday is One Day reassures both child and parent that a warm reunion will always happen, too.

The charming illustrations are by Julian Hector. Check out his website and blog. And go here to download and construct a toy from Monday is One Day.

    Fantastic! Looks like some of the best minds around are again on target with this publication. Clearly see a successful series could be around the corner.

    • Agreed, Laura. It’s exactly the book I would’ve snapped up if it were around when my son was a wee one. It would’ve consoled me, too. Clearly a book that speaks to both parent and child.
