My husband and I are planning our yearly kid-free vacation. Asmuch as we love our kids we need some "us" time, so every year weplan a 3 or 4 day vacation to our favourite spot. The kids are super-excited tobe spending the time with Nan and Pop, but they are a little anxious about usleaving. "Charlie the Cavalier Travels the World" is the perfectstory to share with my children before we go on vacation.
"Charlie the Cavalier Travels the World" tells the story of Charlieand adorable little puppy who goes on a trip around the world. He leaves hisfavourite human Lilly behind while he explores the world. Travel the world withCharlie as he discovers exciting landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and the Great Wallof China. No matter where Charlie goes Lilly is never far from his thoughts.
The biggest lesson my children learned is that even though Mom and Dad may begoing far away, we'll always be thinking of them. We chatted about thedifferent ways we can keep in touch while we are away. Like Charlie, we'll beable to phone home, text, send post cards and even video chat. We even tooksome time to experiment with Skype to chat back and forth. The kids are excitedto know that we will still only be a phone call away.
The illustrations are simple adorable. Charlie is as cute as can be. The imagesof the landmarks are easily identifiable. The illustrator has taken the time tohide hearts on the pages for you to find. If you sign up for the Charlie the Cavalier newsletter on thewebsite, you will receive your own Charlie printable puppet to make and takewith you on your travels.
