Reviews from Parents

I just read this fun book with my three Grandkids, ranging in age from 6-20 months and it is such a fun book.  The kids all love it and now we are telling even more knock knock jokes, even the 20 month old. This story kept all of the kids engaged and the illustrations are fantastically bright and wonderful. We all had so much fun reading the book. Great read and I’m happy we got to read it. -Kathleen,  from the Fearless Creative Mamas Blog I think this is a great way to engage children when they are away from a loved one. It is also a really good way to occupy small ones when they happen to get stuck in an adult only environment. They are left feeling a part of the activity and well loved. Charlie the Cavalier is a wonderful read for children, be it at bedtime, when loved ones are away and on Skype or just an everyday rhyme. The words are catchy and engaging for young children.  -Pam Andrews, Mom Charlie the Cavalier is an adorable read along story for kids. It is written with a nice rhyme and the pictures would be great for kids. I would have liked a story line but the book works as a nice comforting read when loved ones are far away. Don’t forget the free downloadable bonus, great for the kids too. -Kevin S., Dad
