About the Author

Eleanor May is the author of many books for Kane Press, including several titles in the Mouse Math and Math Matters series. She also writes under the pen names Nan Walker and Lewis B. Montgomery. She lives with her family in eastern Pennsylvania. Deborah Melmon has been a freelance illustrator in the San Francisco Bay area for over 30 years. Among her many picture books are Picnic at Camp Shalom, Speak Up, Tommy, One Good Deed, and Chicken Soup, Chicken, Soup. Deborah lives with a comical Airedale Terrier named Mack.


The latest in the Mouse Math series both gets readers ready for the routines of school and hammers home the days of the week. Albert is extremely excited about his first day of school. He is especially looking forward to paw painting, playing the piano, and feeding the class pet, all of which he's heard about from his older sister, Wanda. So getting used to a fixed routine, when special activities take place on different days, is rather tough for him; Tuesday is art day, not Monday, and though he enjoys seeing a story told with puppets at library time, he still wants to paint. He gets to paint on Tuesday, but he can't feed the fish whenever he wants he has to wait for his turn, which is on Wednesday. And so it goes through the week, Albert always wishing he could do things whenever he wants to, as at home, but learning that school is different. But by Friday, Albert is showing a new student the ropes. Melmon's bright, cheery cartoons are a nice introduction to the sights and activities of school, and almost every spread includes some visual display of the days of the week. Two pages of 'Fun Activities' in the backmatter give adults ideas on how to extend the learning. Change is hard, but for those learning to be patient, Albert is a good guide. Kirkus Reviews
