Parents and children in five distinctive families count off the days from Monday through Friday as each parent leaves for a 9-to–5 job. Everyone looks forward to the weekend when they can be together for some quality time. A rhyming text reassures young children that parents love them and think about them even when they are apart, and all of the “fun day” Sunday activities reiterate the small gestures of affection we have seen throughout the week. The colorful illustrations show a variety of families, including a single mom, a single dad, gay dads, a mom and dad, and grandparents as primary caregivers, and a family with twins. (Ages 2–4)
