Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite! This beautiful book is one of my favourites for using in my classroom and getting kids writing! We work through the images together and then students go on their own to write their own version of "Next Tuesday". Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved This! Aww, I'm so glad I found this again! My librarian read- well, showed, I suppose- this book to us back when I was in school. I didn't think I'd like it because it didn't have any words, but I ended up going through a phase of seeking out wordless picture books. Tuesday is great! Lots of room for the imagination to run free, and filled with intriguing illustrations to explore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Treasure! It was in my OAC English Literature class that I first read this book. My teacher was introducing postmodern styles in literature and it was one that was included. I fell in love with it immediately and wanted to buy one not only for my niece but for myself! It's a true masterpiece and I encourage anyone to read it if they have a chance! It will definitely make you smile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!! I liked this book, it was introduced to my by the speech therapist at my daughter's school. She is using it to help develop her language skills and to begin to use more sophisticated words. The book has incredible pictures and colours. There are so many things in the pictures, that for a child describing what is happening in the story, it opens many doors. I like finding books like this for my child. She is beginning to learn how to better epxress herself and expand her skills with language. She enjoyed this book. She looks carefully at each picture before starting to describe what she sees and what she thinks is happening in the story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully Smart Picture Book This book is a brilliant thing. Beautiful, intelligent....I read it first in a friend's house...none of us have children, but we all took turns reading it...it's not a book you can simply flip through...the pictures need time....and you make the story up as you go since there are no words... read it...
