Book Description:

The Charlie Chaloosy book series kicks off with its inaugural offering, Charlie Chaloosy is Often Quite Choosy.

The first book focuses on Charlie's experiences as he learns lessons, gains new experiences, and grows up in a world that happens to rhyme. The story is told through the use of a playful rhyme scheme and enhanced with beautifully colored illustrations of Charlie tackling new adventures in whimsical detail. The book ends with Charlie providing two pages for the reader to become an author by writing their own story.

I received an advance review book for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Brad Mason, Ed.D. and iRead Book Tours. I'm excited to be a part of this tour!

Charlie Chaloosy is Often Quite Choosy is a delightful read that encourages children to try new things even when they are fearful. This book centers around Charlie who has his favorite toast, clothes, and shoes. He even avoids learning to do new things because he is fearful. Realizing making friends can be hard, he begins to wonder if he started trying new things whether his likes would expand. Soon he is trying all kinds of things and finding the more he tries the more his world expands.

The writing style is sure to engage young readers with its rhymes, they may even find themselves with a serious case of “the giggles”. The illustrations are gorgeous. With bright colors and a level of depth that brings the story to life.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would love to see it in all childcare centers and schools. The messaging is spot on and the story leaves readers feeling brave enough to tackle their fear of the unknown. My favorite part of this book is the end. The author made space for the reader to reflect on themselves by writing their own story then drawing a picture to go with their story.

Meet the Author:

My passion for children's literature stems from 30+ years in education and my re-entry into bedtime stories with the addition of my beautiful grandchildren. I created Charlie as a means for children to learn with Charlie by having a growth mindset when it comes to facing new experiences and learning new things. Children live in a world that is traveling ever faster and my desire is to help them slow down and enjoy childhood through the adventures of Charlie Chaloosy. I hope children have fun with Charlie while engaging their minds through stories that encourage them to read, write, illustrate, and dream a little.
