    The opening pages of Sunday Potatoes, Monday Potatoes have a nesting doll format, zooming in on a country, a town, a street, a house, and then inside the house, where we are introduced to a poor potato farming family who only have potatoes to eat The setting feels historical and Eastern European.After we meet the family, we are given a series of two page spreads showing the family dinner each day of the week The text for these are simple On Sunday, they ate potatoes , Monday, they ate potat The opening pages of Sunday Potatoes, Monday Potatoes have a nesting doll format, zooming in on a country, a town, a street, a house, and then inside the house, where we are introduced to a poor potato farming family who only have potatoes to eat The setting feels historical and Eastern European.After we meet the family, we are given a series of two page spreads showing the family dinner each day of the week The text for these are simple On Sunday, they ate potatoes , Monday, they ate potatoes , Tuesday, potatoes , and so on This is ideal for fill in practice, and my kids love saying Potatoes As the week progresses, the family looks increasingly unhappy But then, on Saturday, the mom makes a special dish potato pudding With a recipe in the back if you are into it This is a joyful, celebratory page, and the family, right down to the cat, is thrilled to dig in.Sunday Potatoes, Monday Potatoes shows poverty in a very simple, age appropriate way, centering the conflict on lack of food choice, something most children understand, but that kids with sensory issues, like so many with autism, may relate to in a special way The complexity of the joy the family gets from their special potato dish is probably lost on my kids right now, but I m hoping they will come to understand it better.The illustrations, linoleum cuts, according to a Kirkus review, are bright and evocative Since the special meal is on a Saturday, I believe the family is meant to be Jewish This difference is handy since almost all days of the week books favor a Monday to Sunday sequence and often have Christian overtones in their Sunday emphasis Kids need to learn that the sequence of days can begin at any point, and I appreciate the variation.Another great use for this book is in tacting emotions The family begins the week on Sunday with neutral expressions, but progressively lookandsad, and then even angry by Friday Saturday s happiness is a stark contrast of happy, joyful faces I am trying to pair tacting emotions with inferring the reason for these emotions For now, I am modeling the language around this, since my kids aren t ready to make this leap Why are they sad Because dinner is potatoes AGAIN Etc.Sadly, this book is out of print However, I was easily able to buy an inexpensive used copy online
