Okay, today isn’t Tuesday… But the book is. I checked it out of the library, doing a random run-through with my daughter looking for more books to read to her.
David Weisner wrote this 1992 Caldecott Medal Winner. It has 32 pages and very few words. Amazon says Tuesday‘s aimed at children 4 to 8. In this book, it catalogs many terrific happenings beginning on Tuesday around 8 pm.
In my opinion, picture books are to help parents talk to children and show them stories. It doesn’t matter how many words are on the page – I can describe the pictures to begin a conversation with my daughter. (Okay, it’s a one-sided conversation since she doesn’t have enough words to chatter back in a way I understand.)
I am excited to share it with her again as she gets older.
In other news, I entered two contests that ended at midnight last night. Cross your fingers for me.
