TC-VIB Picks for Kids (Very Impressive Books)
Every now and then we encounter a new children's book or series that we’re so excited about we want to broadcast it from the rooftop. We've created the Kids' TC VIB (very impressive book) to highlight real stand-outs among the many delightful and meaningful new editions for young readers. Our latest selection for this honor is:
Tuesday Tucks Me In: The Loyal Bond Between a Soldier and His Service Dog by Luis Carlos Montalván, Bret Witter, Dan Dion
As narrated by Tuesday, Tuesday Tucks Me In is a day in the life of this service dog extraordinaire and tail-wagging ambassador for all things positive and uplifting in the world. The book takes us through a typical day of adventures, starting with Tuesday waking military veteran Luis Carlos Montalván in the morning and greeting him with dog breath in the face, and then ending with Tuesday cuddling up to Luis on their bed, the last moment they spend together before sleep.
Here's what our Lead Children's Book Buyer Judy B. says:
"There is a remarkable bond between an ex-serviceman, a "wounded warrior", and a professionally trained service dog, Tuesday, who helps with Fmr. Captain Luis Carlos Montalvan's physical and emotional challenges. Not only does Luis have terrible physical pain, he needs Tuesday, a big handsome and smart Golden Retriever, to provide a certain calm and centering throughout the day.
Be sure to note the sox that Mr. Montalvan wears!
This is such a moving story and the cover tells you everything about this beautiful relationship between man and his very best friend." ~Judy
