George J. and the Miserable Monday is the second book in The Super Fun Day Books series written and illustrated by Sivan Hong for toddlers through first grade readers. The Super Fun Days Books series is a collection of inspirational stories through which young children learn how to work through and overcome social and emotional challenges. There are a lot of fun, laughs and feelings, lessons to learn, and plenty of things for children to think about. Sivan wrote the book with simple-to-understand wording and illustrations for children of every ability to enjoy.

The Book

George J. is a little boy who is struggling with worry and anxiety regarding the approach of Monday.  He enjoys his weekends immensely.  They are always fun and stress free and then Monday rolls around and George begins to fret and feel nervous because he has to go to school.  He gives the reader 5 reason's why Mondays are scary to him.  Both his mom and his dad tell him it's ok to feel nervous and that fear and bravery work closely together and he can choose the latter which will give him confidence and inner peace.

Kids will learn that fear can be overcome as they face changes in their lives.  They will understand that they are not alone to deal with their struggles of nervousness.  Their family and friends are there to support them and cheer them on.  The message of the book is positive and uplifting and it is a perfect catalyst for discussion of feelings and emotions regarding emotional challenges that may occurr.  I highly recommend this book.
