Each day of the week brings a new food, until on Sunday all the world's children can come and eat it up.

String beans, spaghetti, ZOOOOP, roast beef, fresh fish, chicken and ice cream are the delicious fare during the week in this popular children's song. Until Sunday.

Celebrated artist Eric Carle brings new energy to these much-loved verses as lively animals parade across the page, munching on favorite dishes, and introducing young readers to the names of the days of the week. Both art and song invite children to join in the procession and sing along.

More About Eric Carle

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Eric Carle is acclaimed and beloved as the creator of brilliantly illustrated and innovatively designed picture books for very young children. His best-known work, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, has eaten its way into the hearts of literally millions of children all over the world and has been translated into more than 25 languages and sold over twelve million copies. Since the Caterpillar was published in 1969, Eric Carle has illustrated more than sixty books, many best sellers, most of which he also wrote.

Born in Syracuse, New York, in 1929, Eric Carle moved with his parents to Germany when he was six years old; he was educated there, and graduated from the prestigious art school, the Akademie der bildenden Kunste, in Stuttgart. But his dream was always to return to America, the land of his happiest childhood memories. So, in 1952, with a fine portfolio in hand and forty dollars in his pocket, he arrived in New York. Soon he found a job as a graphic designer in the promotion department of The New York Times. Later, he was the art director of an advertising agency for many years.

One day, respected educator and author, Bill Martin Jr, called to ask Carle to illustrate a story he had written. Martin's eye had been caught by a striking picture of a red lobster that Carle had created for an advertisement. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? was the result of their collaboration. It is still a favorite with children everywhere. This was the beginning of Eric Carle's true career. Soon Carle was writing his own stories, too. His first wholly original book was 1,2,3 to the Zoo, followed soon afterward by the celebrated classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Eric Carle's art is distinctive and instantly recognizable. His art work is created in collage technique, using hand-painted papers, which he cuts and layers to form bright and cheerful images. Many of his books have an added dimension - die-cut pages, twinkling lights as in The Very Lonely Firefly, even the lifelike sound of a cricket's song as in The Very Quiet Cricket - giving them a playful quality: a toy that can be read, a book that can be touched. Children also enjoy working in collage and many send him pictures they have made themselves, inspired by his illustrations. He receives hundreds of letters each week from his young admirers. The secret of Eric Carle's books' appeal lies in his intuitive understanding of and respect for children, who sense in him instinctively someone who shares their most cherished thoughts and emotions.

The themes of his stories are usually drawn from his extensive knowledge and love of nature - an interest shared by most small children. Besides being beautiful and entertaining, his books always offer the child the opportunity to learn something about the world around them. It is his concern for children, for their feelings and their inquisitiveness, for their creativity and their intellectual growth that, in addition to his beautiful artwork, makes the reading of his books such a stimulating and lasting experience.

Carle says: "With many of my books I attempt to bridge the gap between the home and school. To me home represents, or should represent; warmth, security, toys, holding hands, being held. School is a strange and new place for a child. Will it be a happy place? There are new people, a teacher, classmates - will they be friendly? I believe the passage from home to school is the second biggest trauma of childhood; the first is, of course, being born. Indeed, in both cases we leave a place of warmth and protection for one that is unknown. The unknown often brings fear with it. In my books I try to counteract this fear, to replace it with a positive message. I believe that children are naturally creative and eager to learn. I want to show them that learning is really both fascinating and fun."

Eric Carle has two grown-up children, a son and a daughter. With his wife Barbara, he lives in Northampton, Massachusetts. The Carles spend their summers in the nearby Berkshire hills.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
What if you don't know the song?  Jul 7, 2007
Perhaps this book would be better for me and my son if I knew the song that supposedly goes with the book title. Wouldn't it be great to have a button in the front that played the tune of the song so everyone would get the fun of this book? My 3 year old likes the book, but I think he would love it if I knew the song.
 
Not His Best  Oct 26, 2006
I purchase library books for a 200 plus student preschool. The children may choose their own book each week. Off the top of my head I know of 8-10 parents that would object to the picture of the fox with a chicken in its mouth. While I personally did not have a problem with the picture, I have to review it through the eyes of others. I sent the book back.
 
Days of the week..signing fun  Aug 22, 2006
First grade starts in just a week...for this teacher. Today I pulled out one of my first of the year songs, "Today Is Monday" which I have on tape along with Carle's terrific illustrated book. I teach it with the signs for the weekdays, food and later add in connecting words as the year progresses and the sign vocabulary increases. I can sign well enough to set the first grade songs and curriculum into place alongside the language I'm developing in beginning reading. So we sign both days of the week (which are like the letter signs I'm teaching turned in a circle) and the foods we sing about, green beans, spaghetti, chicken, roast beef, ice cream ,zoup, fried fish. By the end of the week we have reviewed days of the week, put the signs in place, got some hilarious food signs going and can perform something for parents for Back to School visits. I have the big book version of this book so we read together the text working on the days vocab which then becomes spelling in a few weeks. And thus the start of another fun year.

I recommend ANY Carle book to children, and taken as an oeuvre, his legacy to early childhood education is unmatched. If you like to sing silly, folksy songs with your children , this is certainly great for that. In the back there is the music which I play on our class piano when showing off. First graders are very impressed with "look two hand" piano. By the time I'm playing ,then the chosen one "monitor" of the "Days of the Week and other Calendar Duties" is leading the signing of the song while the "Book Pages Monitor" is turning the big book so our class follows the text and we work on literacy goals with a bit of room participation.
I think the book is great in 1st, can't imagine one better except my husband's Days of the Week tune which is gorgeous, and then you get great slide guitar, but of course not available except in South Oxnard on my pretty apple carpet. Buy Carle, give Carle and read Carle with your babies , the time passes in the blink of an eye.
 
Not Eric Carle's best work  Aug 16, 2005
I love Eric Carle's books, but this one does not measure up to his other works. It introduces an animal eating a food on each day of the week starting with Monday (not Sunday), but there is no plot and is just plain boring. Wish I hadn't spent my money on this one.
 
What's Not to Like?  Jul 28, 2005
I like this book and my son loves it. It's a little hard to read (makes you out of breath), but we always sing it when we read it. This would make a great addition to any toddler's collection.
