Drs. Linda and Al Silbert have developed a broad line of instructional programs to teach reading, writing, math, social studies, science, language arts and a line of Parent Information books that give parents guidance about dyslexia, dyscalculia dysgraphia and other subjects. Dr. Linda Silbert has over 40 years of experience working with children with ADD, ADHD, dyslexia and other language disorders. The Silberts’ materials are the tried-and-true result of this work.

Their complete reading programs are designed to help children learn to read and/or correct reading difficulties through fun and enjoyable resources.

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.

The various dolls are the characters in the entire Tiger Tuesday Reading Program, which includes games and other books and activities that all tie-in to help parents teach their children with enjoyment and pleasure, so that the children don’t even know they are learning and practicing!

The Tiger Tuesday Program materials can be used as a supplement to other reading programs and can be purchased separately or as a kit.
