Below is from an article in Homeschool Almanac
"The Tale of Tiger Tuesday is the beginning of the reading adventure featuring Tiger Tuesday, a doll who comes to life as a real boy. The story line is that Mr. and Mrs. Tuesday own a button & yarn store but their lives are humdrum and boring. They hear about a magic oak tree and figure they will find it and see if it has magic for them.
They find the tree and a bag of buttons and yarn. They take the materials home and begin making yarn dolls of all sorts – children and animals. As time passes, they have so many dolls, they have to get a bigger house. Mr. Tuesday creates a doll street complete with post office, fire house, etc., for the dolls. The children around their home love to come to the Tuesdays
to play on the doll street. The last yarn and buttons in the bag are used to create one last doll – named Tiger Tuesday. As soon as Tiger is made, he comes to life and brings life to all of the dolls on the street, much to the pleasure of most everyone in the vicinity of the Tuesdays’ house."
