Tuesday – A Wordless Picture Book

Tuesday - A Picture Book Review from All About Reading

Are You Ready for Tuesday?

In this Caldecott Medal-winning picture book, David Wiesner is at his hilarious best as he takes readers on an unexpected nighttime adventure.

The nearly wordless story begins on a “Tuesday evening, around eight.” The sun sets and a town settles in for the night.

On a nearby pond, however, things are not settling in. In fact, things are just beginning to get interesting.

While unsuspecting residents enjoy a quiet evening, their small town comes to life as their amphibious neighbors take to the skies.

Throughout the night, the local frogs take over, wreaking havoc and creating a mystery of epic proportions for neighborhood dogs and law enforcement alike!

If you venture outside on a Tuesday night, keep your eyes on the skies. You just never know what you’ll see.

Tips for Reading This Book with Your Preschooler:

  • Explain the difference between something that is imaginary and something that is real. Talk about what the “real” things and the “imaginary” things are in this book.
  • As you read this book with your preschooler, have him add some sound effects.
  • Find the dog in all the illustrations. What do you think he’s thinking on each page?
  • Walk to a nearby pond to look for lily pads. And frogs!
