Book Review: Alycat and the Monday Blues by Alysson Foti Bourque

This is a delightfully fun children’s book!
Alycat and the Monday Blues
by Alysson Foti Bourque
Hardcover: 38 pages
Publisher: Mascot Books (September 12, 2017)
ISBN-13: 978-1684012459
Genre: Children, Music, School
My Rating: 4.5 of 5.0

One Monday morning, Alycat wakes up with the dreaded Monday Blues—she's certain that everything will go wrong. But even when mishaps seem to ruin her day, she finds out that helping a friend can lead to discovering hew own hidden talent and curing the Monday Blues!

Alycat wakes up dragging one Monday Morning. She doesn’t want to go to school and doesn’t know what talent she can share for the school talent show. Mother encourages her to go to school where she is sure to feel better and find inspiration for her talent.

Alycat has a mishap during the day but it helps her find a talent to share. She makes up words to go with a friend’s instrument and they even bring her father into the group playing another accompanying instrument. The song is fun and I enjoyed singing it to my five-year-old granddaughter. She enjoyed the story and tried to sing the words too by the end.

The book is fully illustrated and shares a good story for children going to school but sometimes experiencing reluctance. The book came with a card with a code that allowed us to access the songs and coloring pages. My granddaughter was quite excited about these too, even though my version of the song wasn’t quite the same as the online song. 😊.

I enjoyed this light read and recommend it for sharing with early school age children.

I received this print book from the auhotr through iRead Book Tours.
