One Monday Morning
by Uri Shulevitz
Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR) 2003
Ages: 3 to 5
Topic: Books about Days of the Week
Caldecott illustrator Uri Shulevitz breathes life into a deck of cards and helps them come alive on a rainy day as a royal entourage visits a young boy in inner city. Everything about this book is marvelous.
The repetitive tale, the juxtaposition of the king, the queen and the royal party against the drab city scenes, the anticipation "When will the little boy be home?", the pen and ink illustrations as well as the surprise ending will charm you.
