This beginning chapter book contains charming dialogue and portrays a loving animal family. Charlie learns a valuable lesson and readers are given a glimpse into the seasonal lives of the squirrel family. I would recommend the book for early readers in the five to eight-year-old age group. My only complaint is the small size of the text which may be difficult for young children.
The squirrel family is generous and kind in these pages. The text of the story is easily read, with occasional rhymes that offer occasional surprises. The illustrations are fun—definitely town squirrels, dressed for the place. And there’s even a lesson about how squirrels survive the winter.
Disclosure: I got it on a deal.
The interaction between the family members is playful and feels real. The squirrels are friendly and happy. The story itself has two good morals and teaching children not be nosey and prepare for the future. However, I don’t know that a children’s story should have people throwing rocks at animals no matter the reason.
Aside from that the first part and the second part felt disjointed. The two parts were unrelated. If the latter was deleted all together it would give the story one main theme that worked. The artwork was coarse as well and did not keep my girls attention. They like Charlie and the other squirrels but that was all.
This book gets three stars because the girls did enjoy reading it that night. With a revision and improved artwork this book has major potential. I would love to see the new and improved Charlie
