Item description for Ma Dear's Aprons by Patricia C. McKissack & Floyd Cooper...

A Newbery Honor Book author and Coretta Scott King Honor Book illustrator join forces for this heartfelt collaboration. The pair movingly capture what life was like for a poor single mother and son in a time before washing machines, cars, and TV sets. Full color.

Publishers Description
Young David Earl always knows what day of the week it is because his mother, Ma Dear, has a different apron for every day except Sunday -- when they can set aside some special no-work time, just for themselves.
