Brief Summary: From Houghton Mifflin-“In David Wiesner’s whimsical and elegant New York Times bestseller and Caldecott Medal–winner, the events of a delightfully unpredictable Tuesday invite readers to find the potential for the wondrousness in every day.”
Ideas for using this book in classroom or library –An activity found here, suggests asking children to write their own text to accompany the illustrations, which I think would be a great way to use this in a literature class.
Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it –The very detailed and almost real illustrations say a lot without needing text. My favorite is the two-page spread of the most absurd thing: the flying frogs on their lily pads high above a sleeping suburb.
