Grade 1–4—Charlie's at it again, and this time the pooch takes the Northeast by storm. From Ohio to Maine, he visits 12 states and their landmarks. This geography lesson is presented in the form of a scavenger hunt. Charlie hides among colorful spot illustrations superimposed on a state map facing rhyming text: "Find Providence, Kingston,/Narragansett Bay./Find Newport,/the place for a jazz holiday./Where's Charlie?" The information on each spread will inspire children to inquire further. Like Jean Marzollo's popular "I Spy" series (Scholastic) and Martin Handford's "Where's Waldo?" books (Candlewick), this is a fun, creative way to learn.—Kristen M.
