Annotation

In "Tuesday with Mommy... and Pterodactyls," Jessie visits the big museum in the city and is completely shocked to see that real dinosaurs are much larger and more frightening than her dinosaur toys at home. With Mommy’s help, Jessie makes parallels between the dinosaurs and herself, and is able not only to overcome her fears, but also to soar with her favorites, the pterodactyls. "Tuesday with Mommy... and Pterodactyls" is the second book in The Jessie Books series, which offers an inspiring story for each day of the week, featuring a precocious little girl who lives with her two moms in Queens, New York. Be sure to join Jessie on Wednesday, when she and Grandpa enjoy an exciting day of talk and play in the park.
