This very silly rhyming book explores Mrs. Jolly's week and the work that fills her days. Some of her work will sound familiar but there is always a twist that will make preschoolers giggle. Great story time read for preschool through 1st grade.

There are few who would contest that when it comes to good-hearted, high-spirited lunacy, the top of the pops is Mrs. Jolly Bones. Perfectly living up to her name, this collaboration between Warren Hanson and Tricia Tusa may inadvertently teach kids the days of the week, but it’s also just as likely to teach them stranger lessons, like the fact that cake sliced by a power saw is much tastier than the alternative.

It’s Monday and Mrs. Jolly Bones knows what that means. Laundry day! With her animal friends aiding her she collects all the dirty clothes then cleans and dries and even irons them, one by one. After folding them “nice and neat” she then flings, “them out the window . . . to brighten up the street!” The next shot shows a bemused if baffled populace walking, biking, and living in the midst of a veritable clothes hurricane. Each day of the week follows suit with Mrs. Jolly Bones doing something normal at first, ending her actions with an act of madness. Each unique little twist varies, with some more ridiculous than others. By the end of the week Mrs. Jolly Bones spend the day in bed with occasional yodels at the moon, just in time to do it all again next week!
