The children’s book Monday is One Day by author Arthur A. Levine and published by Scholastic is a fantastic story told from the perspective of a father to his son. Like many fathers, this father has to leave his son every day to go to work. The book takes a difficult subject for most working parents and breaks it down into a simple yet touching story. I was touched almost immediately just reading the description because I’ve felt the very same feelings the author must have felt when writing the book. I felt that hole in the pit of my stomach every day that I spent apart from my son. I longed for the next time I would see my son again when I was away from him; I’m so glad an author was able to put those feelings to words so eloquently. Monday is One Daymakes for an excellent bed time story – especially for parents that are apart from their children during the day.
