    Okay, but who doesn't hate Mondays? I'm sure there are a few, but to most people Monday is the start to a long week. In this book, we meet a new friend name George J. He seems like a fun, little dude! He likes spaceships and funny books! You know what he doesn't like? MONDAYS! They are brutal and miserable and awful. Most adults who work the whole 9-5 work week will agree and probably be able to empathize a lot with our new friend.

They are brutal and miserable and awful. Most adults who work the whole 9-5 work week will agree and probably be able to empathize a lot with our new friend. George presents some great reasons as to why Mondays suck (and man, do they suck BIG TIME). Why is this book so good? It lets kids know that it's okay to worry and not like Mondays. Mondays can bring some big feelings for kids who might not know what to expect (or know to expect the worst). It gives kids a chance to understand and see some solutions for big feelings. The illustrations in this book are simple and remind me old kid comics. They give this book some personality! Overall, this is a fun book! I'd highly recommend it for a little chuckle and a splash of learning. Four out of five stars. Thank you to NetGalley and Amitz Press for providing me a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

    Great book for children dealing with anxieties that might be hard to put words to. This gives kids (and their caregivers) direction on how to identify the things that makes children feel the way they do and an action plan to help get through it!

    I read this with my 5 year old. He thought it was funny. The illustrations were good. Enjoyable story, showing how children's anxiety can prevent them from thinking that they could have a good day. This book opened up a discussion on how everyone has worries and fears, very common ones, even friends and moms and dads. The book ended up well, showing that fears/worries are often unfounded.

    I think we can all relate to little George J's dilemma. Sometimes you just really don't want to deal with Mondays. But this book helps show that while you may have some worries about how the day will go, if you put your best foot forward, you'll realize it's not as bad as you thought it would be.

    I received an electronic ARC from Darcie Rowan PR through NetGalley. George is not a fan of Mondays. He shares his top five reasons with readers. They may identify with at least one of them and possibly all five. His family listens to him and reassures him that he can be brave and face the new day at school. Each is supportive when the dreaded Monday arrives also. Hong uses clear language for elementary level readers. The illustrations are simple and detailed enough for readers to recognize George I received an electronic ARC from Darcie Rowan PR through NetGalley. George is not a fan of Mondays.

Terrific book for families or classes to reassure nervous children and offer assurance of consistency in the classroom.
