Bedtime Story: Monday is One Day by Arthur A. Levine

Read for: Children's Book Challenge
Synopsis: "A love note from a working parent to a child, counting the days of the week -- each one a special opportunity to spend time together.

One by one, the days of the week roll by. Monday is one day, Tuesday is blue shoes day, and Wednesday is halfway day.

When Saturday and Sunday finally come, it's time for little ones and the adults who love them to play, share, and celebrate. Every day of the week offers a special opportunity for families to enjoy being together!"

My Review: I ordered this book a while ago from Scholastic and I have no idea why I waited so long to read it with Munchkin. It is a great book to talk about the days of the week, especially when discussing when and why you have to go to work with children. They do the days of the week starting on Monday as opposed to Sunday (but in reality how many people actually look at Sunday as the first day of the week anymore?). It has fun little rhymes for each of the days of the week for you to use to remind little ones of how many days are left until the weekend and time together.
My Rating: This is an excellent book for not only introducing the days of the week but also the concept of working days. It would be nice if there was something about odd shifts but that would probably complicate the story. We give this one a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
