Tuesday Takes Me There: The Healing Journey of a Veteran and his Service Dog Reviews
I have a great grandnephew who will get this book after it does its turn on my coffee table. Many of my friends are familiar with Luis and Tuesday and will enjoy this as well. The story line is clever and gives an outsider a great look at all the ways some New Yorkers like Luis and Tuesday have access to. This would be rather foreign to children from less urban areas. As with "Tuesday Tucks Me In" the photography is charming and varied. The skyline photo with the intrepid duo in the foreground is a favorite. The Union Station photo of the two of them is grand. My favorite, however, is a delightful photo of Tuesday splashing his way through a creek. The best part of this children's book is the progression to a special ending which many may experience in person with Luis and his beloved Tuesday. The back cover is a wonderful view cherished by Americans and a great conclusion to the journey.
Our family just received this gorgeous children's book! It is heartwarming, educational, inspiring, and so beautifully illustrated. As told by Captain Luis Carlos Montalvan's service dog, Tuesday, this delightful story takes you on a journey throughout New York City, via a ferry boat, a bus, a train, a carriage ride, by foot and even a helicopter, passing by and visiting the beautiful sites of New York City, including the Statue of Liberty, The Freedom Tower, Central Park, etc. Then off to Washington, D. C. these two go traveling by train! So much to see, so much to do, and Tuesday is always by Luis' side to make sure he is safe, balanced, calm and clears the way for him while walking down busy, crowded streets. This is a story of the unconditional love shared between an army veteran, dealing with PTSD, and his service dog. Children will learn how a well trained service dog, like Tuesday, provides assistance for people with visible and invisible disabilities, The ending of this beautiful children's book will touch your heart with a warm hug and true happiness! It is a heartwarming, educational journey to take for both children and adults! I most highly recommend Tuesday Takes Me There for all children you love and adore. Diane Bonita
What a wonderful book for everyone, especially children. I love that the book is told from Tuesday's point of view. He explain all the important things he does for Captain Montalván. The picture are beautiful and the narrative easy for kids to read. The pictures of Tuesday as Commander Tuesday made my week.
Tuesday Takes Me There is a great book to read in the classroom or with individual tutoring. There are several useful lessons to explore such as what Service Dogs do, what life with a service dog is all about, and the powerful loving bond between human and dog. I have used this book with students with learning disabilities and it held their attention and helped them to feel more understanding about why someone with PTSD would need a service dog and how the dog can make life safe, sweet, and wonderful. This is a great book to talk about "non-judgment" of others and to build empathy for people facing challenges. For dog loving children, you can't ask for more.
I have read "Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him," "Tuesday Tucks Me In: The Loyal Bond between a Soldier and his Service Dog," and now "Tuesday Takes Me There." I found all of Luis Montalván's books to be so incredibly touching, thought-provoking, educational, and profound--yes, I mean the children's books, too. I am a librarian who serves kids, adults, and teens. A highlight of my career was Luis Montalván and Tuesday's visit to my library to read "Tuesday Tucks Me In." We had a great turnout, and so many appreciative and grateful comments from patrons who felt truly inspired.
Read this book twice and referred back to it several times before reluctantly giving it to one of my daughters to share with her young daughters. God
