Synopsis:

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 of the week a Thursday. Andre's predicament and the loving solution that his family offers will strike a chord with readers of all backgrounds. Melrose Cooper and Nneka Bennett present a warm and touching portrait of a child who experiences a celebration he'll never forget.

TEACHER'S GUIDE AVAILABLE.

"

From School Library Journal: Grade 1-3-In this sweetly didactic story about a single-parent African-American family that's dependent upon Mama's Friday paycheck, the children have been promised a royal celebration if any one of the three makes the honor roll. Consequently, third-grader Andre is thrilled when his teacher tells him he is one of two children in his class to receive that honor. But sadly, report-card day is Thursday, when money is very low, and the child is bitterly disappointed that he can't have his party on the day of his triumph. How his mother and siblings surmount this problem makes a satisfying resolution to the plot. Family love and respect for education are stressed in this believable story. The children complain about the things they can't have right away, but Mama always has a practical suggestion to tide them over. The narrative is conversational and colloquial, written in Andre's words. Strong, tender watercolor-and-colored pencil illustrations spread across facing pages and show the boy at school and the family in their modest but comfortable home.
