Book of the Week

The Everybody’s Story Children’s Library will highlight a book selection each week from the new library. This book will be placed on the new library book shelf for all to see and check out.

This week’s selection is Gettin’ Through Thursday by Melrose Cooper.

About the book: Andre dreads Thursdays. Thursday is the day before Mama gets paid at work each week – it’s the day when money is tight and spirits are low for Andre and his older brother and sister. As report card day approaches, Andre anticipates making the honor roll, and Mama said she’d throw a royal party for just such an event. But Andre can’t believe his eyes when he looks at the calendar and sees that report card day falls on the worst possible day – a Thursday. Andre’s predicament – and the loving solution that his family offers – will strike a chord with readers of all backgrounds.
