I decided to continue this week with another David Wiesner book. This particular picture book has no words! It starts again at night when a boy falls asleep with a book he is reading.

His dream puts him as a character in a variety of wonderful places and magical creatures.

A castle...

An ancient city in the Middle East...

To a modern city and finally home again...





I love how Wiesner uses his pictures to take the reader on a journey they could never have dreamed of!

Teachers can use this book for making inferences, creating a story, writing descriptions...or so many things.

This is a must for using during fiction reading. ENJOY!

Tuesday by David Wiesner

This is one of my all-time favorite books ever! When I first saw it at B&N, I wasn't sure what to think about it. But as I paged through it, I realized what a treasure it is! With only six words in the whole book, Wiesner uses his illustrations to tell the story.

It all starts with a full moon and frogs...

Do I have you hooked yet???

Teacher Resources:
 
I would assign tables of students different pages in the book and have them write a description from the point of view of one of the characters...human or animal (mostly animal).
