All children are fascinated by what their parents do while at work. Here is a wonderful way to teach children the days of the week using the workweek. Work-A-Day Week is beautifully illustrated to reflect the diversity of happy, modern families working and playing together, and is sure to become a staple in your home, library, or classroom. The Sisters Farren show men and women busy at home and at interesting and diverse careers, Monday through Friday. Children have their own work with school and chores, and each of the three weeks depicted ends with families sharing fun time together on Saturday and Sunday. Long after the lessons have been learned, your children or students will find hours of pleasure pouring over every page. The lyrics to this delightful new children's song are enhanced with illustrations and exquisite hand-drawn borders on each page. As a picture book with lots of repetition and a manageable word list, Work-A-Day Week is perfect for children ages 2-7 and can be used at home or in the classroom. It's also ideal for teaching units common to early childhood classrooms: days of the week, careers, and family. This story book features: Only 36 different words, A repeating rhyming pattern, A music chart and chords. See also, Work-A-Day Week Activity Sheets from Rowman & Littlefield Education.
