George J. and the Miserable Monday is a wonderful children’s book that discusses how Mondays can be hard for kids too!
I really enjoyed that this story shows children how other kids may have the same worries and fears they do. George is easy to relate to, and I think he can be a great support for children! The story was easy to understand and is something that kids will enjoy reading again and again!
This is a great book for any child that has a hard time transitioning from the weekend to weekdays. It would be great in any family or school library!
