Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Another song worth singing, Eric Carle's Today Is Monday, begins with string beans on Monday and spaghetti on Tuesday. Different animals eat their way through the week, teaching the names of the days as they go.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3-- Featuring the artist's familiar bold and colorful style, this song was originally illustrated as a frieze in 1977. Now adapted as a picture book, it is a joyous invitation to "all the hungry children"--shown at a multiethnic banquet at the end of the book--to ". . . Come and eat it up!" Each double-page spread shows a line from the song, with a different animal for each day of the week, eating a different food. Most of the animals are eating a predictable food (a fox with a chicken, a pelican with a fish), but there are some nonsensical scenes (a snake with spaghetti, an elephant eating "zoop"). Overall, the verse has a catchy, cumulative rhythm, but it's the dazzling illustrations--gorgeously displayed with a mastery of design and form--that make this a simple, yet memorable, picture book. --Cyrisse Jaffee, Newton Public Schools, MA

My Daughter and I love this book. It helps her remember the days of the week. We giggle and laugh and sing out the words. I highly recommend this book for any child just learning to read.

Format: Paperback
This is cute book that teaches the days of the week with different foods in the form of a story and a song. It also uses different animals and the text is repetitive. Note to teacher: This can be used to teach math skills, different animals ,and foods. The repetitive text builds memory and can implement body movement.

My 2.5 year old daughter adores this book. We bought this one as a replacement (she is very hard on books). I was a little sad that I didn't get it as hard cover, but I sit with her and we read it together, we sing it, she loves it. It is definitely her favorite book.

Format: Board book
This book is a little bizarre. The foods chosen include a chicken that looks alive as it goes down, BUT it's a fun book with the colorful, creative illustrations that are the author's trademark. I highly recommend it since it had my toddler glued!

Format: Paperback
This is a nice illustrated book following the children's song "Today is Monday." It is illustrated in Carle's inimitable collage-art style with a different animal introducing each day and food, and ending with a lot of children sitting around a table eating the different foods. The song is repetitive and uninteresting, but the pictures are very nice. Singing books are wonderful teaching tools, and this is the best book I have found so far for teaching the days of the week.

Unfortunately there is no musical score included, but you can find it on YouTube.

I had this book for my son who is now 23 years old. Well, a slightly different version that is no longer sold. I sent this to my sweet Grand-Nephew. This is a big book with face friendly, colorful pictures. I would read it to my boy in the morning to think about what day it is. I have a more detailed review of the nearly identical book which is now out of print. (Today Is Monday/a Song Book and Wall Frieze: A Song Book and Wall Frieze by Susan Baum )

I bought the board book format and my 20 month old grand-daughter (who has many, many Eric Carle books) has added it to her library. Eric Carle does it again - naming the days of the week and food items - Monday-string beans, Tuesday-spaghetti, Wednesday -zoop, etc. Right after hearing Wednesday, she'd say "zoop", giggle and chuckle. I was overjoyed! On my last visit, we read that book 10 times!

We love all Eric Carle books. The art work and repeative text are so applealing to my kids. My 2 year old loves to hear the story and re reads it to himslef based on the pictures. My 4 year old is able to memorize the text and read it aloud to us. Great story to hear and great book to begin to learn to read with. We also recommend Secret Birthday Message, Hungry Caterpillar, Head to Toe, all Eric Carle
