Charlie the Cavalier Books
What does Charlie the Cavalier teach us?
Charlie the Cavalier stories are written by Lisa Rusczyk. She has a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Charlie and a little girl.
Charlie the Cavalier shows Lilly, the little girl in the books, that she is loved even when she does activities for the first time without her loved ones.
Meet the Author – Lisa Rusczyk Ed. D.
Lisa is dyslexic and did not like to read growing up. But that did not stop her as she became a doctor in educational leadership with an emphasis in educational technology. Lisa has self published over 100 books that are available on Amazon. Over 67,000 of her books were downloaded last year. Lisa does classroom book readings in person and on Skype. She also teaches a class on How to Self Publish a Book in One Day on Skillshare.
Lisa loves to work with illustrator Magdalena Takac and Editor Julie Conzelmann on the Charlie the Cavalier book series. Ten cents of each book that Lisa sells goes to teaching and learning.
“Charlie the Cavalier Travels the World” is the perfect story to share with my children before we go on vacation. One cool thing, even before the story begins, we are told there is a hide and seek game, a little heart on every single page. It’s something for kids to look for and help concentration! I thought it was a really cute story, and love that they include a puppet you can print for children to use during and after the book. – Penny Minding Mom
I started writing Charlie The Cavalier books when I became a stay at home Mom with my first daughter. I realized how hard it was to leave my child when I had to go away for work or pleasure. At the time we were skyping with both sets of Grandparents but my daughter was not interested for very long.
I created Charlie the Cavalier to teach kids to feel comfortable when their loved ones go away. I want parents to know that their kids are loved even when they are not in the same location. I started by creating a book that families could use to skype with called Charlie the Cavalier Begs for Attention. That is where the Charlie the Cavalier printable puppet came from.
Charlie the Cavalier Books are for parents, grandparents, and loved ones of children who sometimes need to go away but still want the children to know that they are loved even when they are not around. Reading Charlie the Cavalier books teaches kids that they are loved. Charlie the Cavalier teaches kids that traveling is fun. When you travel you can still stay connected in different ways. Families can not be together all the time but when we are together we can spend quality time together. -Dr. Lisa
