Staff Reviews

Tuesday Tucks Me In is the story of returned war veteran, Luis Carlos Montalvan, and his service dog, Tuesday, going about their business on a typical day together. Page after page is filled with different ways Luis relies on Tuesday. While waiting for the subway, Tuesday stands vigilant guard for Luis who is reluctant to stand among the waiting crowd of people. Each page is touching and endearing.

A wonderful book for military service families, animal lovers, and those struggling with PTSD/anxiety.
