Today Is Monday Paperback – August 4, 1997 by Eric Carle (Author)

Love, love, love Eric Carle! Bought this to go with my Eric Care collection. My students love the song an we use the rhythm of the words to tap on the drums. Check it out!

From Publishers Weekly Taking his culinary cue from the well-known children’s song, Carle dishes up a smorgasbord of creatures and comestibles. Bold spreads feature larger-than-life birds and animals enthusiastically partaking of their favorite foods: a mottled snake sucks up unruly spaghetti strands, while a calico cat lays a protective paw on Thursday’s roast beef. Though the cumulative rhyme is little more than a grocery list, Carle injects energy and movement with his signature rainbow-like collages. Exotic hues–a turquoise elephant, an emerald fish, a parrot of Technicolor plumage–glow with vitality as if illuminating the animal’s inner core. Yet despite their radiance these are down-to-earth animals imbued with the loving clumsiness of a child’s artwork. The final spread shows children–also of various skin colors–wolfing down the various foods at a sumptuous banquet, as the featured animals look on from paintings on the wall. The song’s music and lyrics bring this feast to a satisfying close. Ages 3-7. Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc. –This text refers to the Hardcover edition.


Today Is Monday Paperback – August 4, 1997 by Eric Carle (Author) Review

Worst book I’ve ever read by Eric Carle. Very disappointed -Read Reviews-

Probay the least interesting of all Carle"s books which I. have so far read (about10. ) The best the I. have so far read are The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Animals, Animals; and. The Very Busy Spider (the most adorable and charming,ironically in part because of its repetitiveness. )The"Zoop" part is. amusing to my 2-year ‘old but I find the. illustrations to be off-putting and the text bland. Somewhat useful. to. teach the days of the week.
