GREAT FOR WHEN DAD TRAVELS- Last night I had my husband read Charlie the Cavalier Begs for Attention with my girls and they loved it. I created a hand puppet for each girl and they sat on his lap all smiles. My husband travels frequently and can be gone for anywhere from an extended weekend to a year and a half at a time. I'm going to have him start reading this book more frequently with the girls, then when he's away it will be fun for them to interact on video chat together, both reading the book together and playing with the puppets! The rhyming and flow of the book are great making it an easy read. As my daughter learns to read more, she'll do a great job practicing reading rhythm with this book. Excellent choice!
SUCH A CUTE BOOK! My 4 year old absolutely loved this story! I know that when I end up traveling that i'll be bringing a copy with me as well to read with him over Skype, though I do believe his favorite part was the making of the puppet together. The story even made me smile a bit while reading it with him. I have a feeling this is a new favorite here!
MUST HAVE FOR KIDS OF ALL AGES! I thought this was one of the cutest books I have ever read for children! I love Cavaliers I think they are the most awesome dogs, so this book appealed to me on that level as well :) And what kid doesn't love a free hand-puppet? The colored illustrations are beautiful, and they will appeal to children very easily. The author does a wonderful job of rhyming and I may be 38 years old but I laughed :) "Olive You"! Must have, must read and must play along with the puppet even if you are an adult!
From the Author
Keeping children's attention while video chatting is difficult. When I would Skype with my daughter she sometimes would not be interested. The Charlie the Cavalier Book and puppet keeps my daughter interested in spending time together even when we are apart. I hope Charlie the Cavalier will bring a smile to the children in your life.
