A funny, reassuring picture book about dogs, tricky choices and friendship – with artwork by bestselling illustrator Nicola Slater!
Charlie does NOT like to choose. He can’t make up his mind between chocolate or vanilla ice cream, stripy or spotty underpants . . . or whether he wants the lights on or off at bedtime. It’s much too hard! The trickiest thing of all to choose is a birthday present – how will he ever make up his mind? But when a new friend with a waggy tail chooses HIM, making choices gets a little easier.
Charlie Chooses is the ideal story to introduce children from 3+ to the idea of making tricky decisions.
All of our paperback picture books come with a free Stories Aloud audio reading.
“Charlie does not like to choose, be it vanilla or chocolate ice cream, or spotty or stripy pants! A warm, reassuring look at the familiar toddler dilemma of making tricky choices.”
-Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
“Charlie Chooses – with its delightful blend of colour, comedy and creative storytelling – is the perfect inspirational story to introduce young children to the concept of making seemingly impossible decisions.”
-Pam Norfolk, Lancashire Post
“Written by Lou Peacock and illustrated with retro exuberance by Nicola Slater, the book puts a humorous cast on what can be, for the possessor, a frustrating personality trait… What’s neat about the seek-and-find detail in Ms. Slater’s pictures is that, even as children experience Charlie’s indecision, they’ll be practicing the art of noticing their own preferences.”
