Author: Eric Carle
Summary(from publisher): String beans, spaghetti, ZOOOOP, roast beef, fresh fish, chicken and ice cream are the delicious fare during the week in this popular children’s song. Until Sunday. Then, all the world’s children are invited to come together and share in the meal.
Accompanying Discussion: Talk about food and meals. Ask students if they like to eat certain foods on certain days, and what they eat at home versus school. Do they help to cook? Who cooks in their homes?
