I have suffered from Sunday Scaries for most of my life. Alycat and her friends have the right approach to spend their Sundays having fun and supporting each other. Alysson Bourque’s sweet story of friendship and overcoming fears is a great read.

“Alycat and the Sunday Scaries” shows young children how to be kind and supportive of their friends who are experiencing fear or disappointment. The kittens also learn to look forward to events in the upcoming week rather than focusing on the “Mondayest of Mondays” tomorrow.

This book is great for anyone (seriously, it’s sweet) who suffers from the Sunday Scaries.

I received an advance review copy for free from NetGalley and Arcadia Publishing, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

This is such a sweet little story. Alycat is worried about the school week, but finds out there is so much to look forward to.
Great book to read with young children about friendship and helping each other. Well written and illustrated.

Thank you NetGalley and Pelican Publishing!

Ok I know this is for children, but I feel like adults could use Alycat and the Sunday Scaries too! An adorable story that discusses the anxiety and fear we feel and the importance of having a support system!! Plus, I love the successful lemonade stand advice!

I love that a picture book is talking about the Sunday Scaries. I had a bad case of Sunday Scaries for a big chunk of my childhood and it is great that there is a picture book that makes it seem less unusual to have it.

Sunday scaries are real! It's important for kids to know that the feeling is normal but we can all do hard things and get past them. What a great book! This should be on all library bookshelves!

Alycat and the Sunday Scaries gave me all the happy feelings! I picked it up because the Sunday scaries are real and I could totally relate to it. The book was so much more though. It was about friendships and supporting one another in times of doubt or uncertainty. The way this group of friends lifted each other up and helped each other was a great example for both adults and children.

I liked how it emphasized a growth mindset and to look ahead at all the great things that will be happening instead of focusing on the negative or what could happen. It is a good reminder to all of us. As a teacher, we talk about growth mindset a lot and this would be a great book to read and have a discussion about it and the examples that were in the book.

As a teacher and parent, I love books that have a lesson, or something we can take away from the book to help us grow as individuals. This book does that. It shows how kindness and friendship can help others but also make us feel better as well. It reminds up to see the positives and not focus on the negative.

I loved this book and the cats as characters makes it feel even more relatable especially to us cat lovers. The illustrations were engaging and bright. Do yourself a favor and order this book which is set to release on March 18, 2024. I know I will!

Thank you Alysson Foti Bourque and NetGalley for letting me voluntarily read this book and leave an honest review.

Absolutely charming book on facing down fears with the help of friends! I loved the adorable illustrations and the upbeat messages, as will any young reader contending with the Sunday Scaries. A gem!

Alycat and the Sunday Scaries is a cute picture book about a cat that dreads Mondays but as she’s playing with her friends on Sunday she helps the other cats overcome their fears so they help her get over her fears away of Mondays. I read this with my 8 year old daughter and she liked the story and illustrations. I’d say this would be a good book for kids aged 3-8.
Thank you NetGalley for the opportunity to ready this book for my honest opinion.
