K-Gr 4—Tuesday is a service dog for Montalván, who has post-traumatic stress disorder, among other disabilities, and knows exactly how and when to soothe him. Tuesday is always with his owner, supporting him as he goes down stairs or riding with him in cabs. The book is told from the dog's point of view and narrated in a calm, easy-to-understand tone ("I even sleep with him, which helps control his nightmares"). The book is humorous but also portrays the sometimes-depressing reality of Montalván's life. It documents their daily activities, including going to the veteran's hospital. There are special treats, too, such as an ice-cream cone at Coney Island. Readers see the close bond between the two and how they care for each other. Crisp, full-page, full-color photographs make evident this strong bond and show their busy life in New York City. The book concludes with an informational note from Montalván that explains more about his disabilities and how much freedom Tuesday has given him. He also talks briefly about the organization that trained Tuesday. A well-written, informative book for both school and public libraries.—Susan E. Murray, formerly at Glendale Public Library, AZ
Montalván, the best-selling author of the adult memoir Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him (2011), is a 17-year army veteran and advocate for veterans with disabilities. Yet this is not his story but that of his golden retriever service dog, Tuesday. The sweet tale follows one perfect day in Tuesday’s life, from the time he wakes Montalván, to his helping his owner navigate the crowded streets and subways of New York City, to a fun trip to an amusement park and playtime with his friends. Tuesday himself relates how he was assigned to assist with the wounds Montalván received during his two tours of duty in Iraq. The reciprocal loyalty and love between dog and owner is palpable and endearing, and photographs of Tuesday resting his head on his master’s feet or taking a cab ride will delight dog lovers. Tuesday typifies the unbreakable bond between humans and canines and in a kid-friendly way, manages to dispel some of the stigma of posttraumatic stress disorder and invisible war wounds. Grades K-3. --Erin Anderson

This story is a wonderful bridge to conversations about "invisible" disabilities, the sacrifices of our veterans, and the mutual devotion between humans and dogs. Additionally, Luis and Tuesday's story helps us talk to children about the reality of stress and anxiety. Sadly, even young children have stress and anxiety, and many of them do not yet know how to put those thoughts and feelings into words. This book gives us a great way to have a dialogue about those feelings and the importance of asking for and accepting help.
I enjoyed Capt. Montalvan's bestseller Until Tuesday, and now it's great to hear Tuesday's side of the story! The story and illustrations are so precious - there's no way you won't love this book!
Luis has brilliantly blended education and whimsy through the narrative voice and beautiful images of his extraordinary best friend and service dog - "Tuesday."
"Tuesday Tucks Me In" is an exceptional balance of soft golden retriever warm fuzzy, tug at that spot in your heart that makes you say "AW" right out loud and practical, necessary, delicately delivered facts that carefully awaken awareness.
I cannot end this review without commenting on the images of Luis and Tuesday, living their lives, and sharing their story. Using photographs, rather than illustrations allows the reader...of any age, to connect with Luis and Tuesday, creating a reading experience that is honest and intimate.
Children will especially benefit from the visuals, because the images of this real soldier and his real service dog make this book more than just a story...
