About this item
It’s Monday morning, 1948. It’s the day the laundry must get done.
Monday is Wash Day brings the reader to days gone by. Discover how one family from the Midwest works and plays in the 1940s. This portrait, with timeless watercolor collage illustrations by Tessa Blackham, gives an opportunity to contrast with today’s tasks and culture with that of Monday is Wash Day and how families worked together. The children get to play as soon as the clothes were put away and the wash is done.
