Alycat and the Monday Blues by Alysson Foti Bourque

Alycat and the Monday Blues - Alysson Foti Bourque

Ok I have to just say I am a 40 something woman and I loved this adorable book. This is one book I really enjoyed not only reading to the kids but I personally enjoyed it. Not just the story either. The illustrations are are top notch. They are so colorful, bright, and eye catching. The pictures themselves pretty much tell the story without the words. The story itself is great. Not only is is a sweet story but it also teaches a lesson. I really like reading stories to the kids that have meaning more then just a cutesy story. 

 

The story is about Alycat. Alycat wakes up on a Monday morning and just can't get it together. She just wants to go back to bed. Lord knows I have a lot of Mondays as I am sure we all do. Mom tells her she must go to school an that she must work out her problems. 

 

One of her biggest worries for the day is the talent show is coming up the next day and she has no clue what her talent will be. Still worrying and thinking about what she would do for the show she ran across Spotty. Spotty was practicing his saxophone for the show, he played wonderfully but wanted some lyrics to go with his music. Together they decide Spotty would play the sax and Alycat would sing. Both friends get very excited and now can't wait for tomorrow.

 

Alysson Foti Bourque has done a wonderful job with this story and Chiara Civati has done a wonderful job with the illustrations. This book would make a great bedtime story or even a great story when your child is having a bad day.
