Tuesday is a whimsical tale of high-flying frogs on a moonlit adventure. The story’s only text lies in the various timestamps marking the frogs’ journey from dusk until dawn. The rich illustrations paint a surrealistic story open for imaginative interpretation. This module invites students to entertain daydreams, see familiar things in a whole new way, and make connections among the unrelated.
