Monday Is One Day

by Arthur A Levine
Illustrated by Julian Hector

Published by Scholastic Press, 2011
28 pages
ISBN: trade 978𢠦39-789240

Ages 2-4

Parents and children in five distinctive families count off the days from Monday through Friday as each parent leaves for a 9-to5 job. Everyone looks forward to the weekend when they can be together for some quality time. A rhyming text reassures young children that parents love them and think about them even when they are apart, and all of the 揻un day Sunday activities reiterate the small gestures of affection we have seen throughout the week. The colorful illustrations show a variety of families, including a single mom, a single dad, gay dads, a mom and dad, and grandparents as primary caregivers, and a family with twins.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
