AWESOME AUTHORS: Life of disabled veteran explained in ‘Tuesday’
Life of disabled veteran explained in ‘Tuesday’
Book: “Tuesday Tucks Me In: The Loyal Bond Between a Soldier and His Service Dog”
Author: Luis Carlos Montalván with Bret Witter
Photographer: Dan Dion
This book is about a service dog, named Tuesday, and a disabled veteran, named Luis. They go to their apartment in the city, to the park and they take the subway back home. Luis went to war and came back with serious injuries, so that’s why Tuesday lives with Luis.
I liked this story because it explains the life of a disabled veteran. My favorite part is when they go on the subway together. And I like his socks.
I recommend this book for others to read because it has a little bit of humor in it, but it is a very good book for others to read.

‘Dirk Yeller’ tells funny story of unlikely friendship
Book: “The Day Dirk Yeller Came to Town”
Author: Mary Casanova
Illustrator: Ard Hoyt
Dirk Yeller was a bad guy who came to a small town. Everyone was afraid of him. A boy, who wanted adventure, followed Dirk Yeller around town. The boy took Dirk Yeller to the library, and he taught him how to read. This made Dirk happy and friendly.
I liked this story because it’s kind of silly. My favorite part was when the boy taught Dirk Yeller how to read. I recommend this book for others to read because it’s funny and a very good story.
