Today is Tuesday by L.P. Chase

Everyone can use someone to talk to, no matter how old you are or what's going on in your life. But children often haven't yet learned the value of voicing their fears, talking out anxieties, or sharing their thoughts with people outside of their family. It can also be hard to open up to someone, especially a professional, when you're filled with fears about what people might think and you don't understand the process.

Today is Tuesday presents the warm and comforting tale of a young boy named Tommy who must come to terms with his weekly therapy appointments. Fearful that his friends will think he's "crazy" or tease him, and even that his mom will find out what he talks about, Tommy resists his initial appointment and is cautious to hide his Tuesday appointments from others. As time passes, however, Tommy is surprised to learn the truth of the matter—-maybe he's not alone in his need to visit a doctor, and maybe his situation isn't so unique or strange after all. As the pieces come together in a way that makes Tommy happier, even about his Tuesday psychologist visits, he finds himself more comfortable, confident, and relaxed in his life.

In its understanding tone and realistic childhood scenarios, the turn of events in Today is Tuesday can help other young therapy patients better understand their situation too.
