Tuesday

  • Title: Tuesday
  • Author: David Wiesner
  • Illustrator: David Wiesner
  • Publisher: Clarion Books, a Houghton Mifflin Company imprint
  • Publication year: 1991
  • 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.
