Luis Carlos Montalván is a military veteran who suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Living a normal life is stressful, so he relies on his service dog, Tuesday, to help him cope with difficult situations. Tuesday loves to travel and eagerly leads the way.

Luis and Tuesday travel around New York City and Washington, D.C. using a variety of transportation methods to see the sights. Tuesday loves riding on the bus, the subway, a ferry boat, and a helicopter, along with many others. Their travels are photographed, showing the many interesting places they visit.

Their final destination is a classroom, where Luis and Tuesday explain the importance of service dogs for veterans suffering from PTSD. Tuesday loves the hugs he gets from the kids. Tuesday Takes Me There is interesting on many levels, touching on transportation, tourist attractions, and the friendship between man and dog. Kids will enjoy reading about Luis and Tuesday’s travels.
