Today Is Monday

written and illustrated by Eric Carle

Seven different animals munch their way through a week with each eating something different. Can be read or sung, music included.

Boldly colored tissue paper collages show seven animals, one at a time on a particular day of the week, as each consumes something different. The text is cumulative and invites active participation in the reading. The refrain, "All you hungry children, come and eat it up!" can be used as a segue to other activities with food.

Class Favorite

Tuesday is always a crowd-pleaser with a friendly looking green snake eating wiggly strands of spaghetti.
