About the Book

The Charlie Chaloosy book series kicks off with its inaugural offering, Charlie Chaloosy is Often Quite Choosy.

​The first book focuses on Charlie's experiences as he learns lessons, gains new experiences, and grows up in a world that happens to rhyme. The story is told through the use of a playful rhyme scheme and enhanced with beautifully colored illustrations of Charlie tackling new adventures in whimsical detail. The book ends with Charlie providing two pages for the reader to become an author by writing their own story.
My Review

Charlie Chaloosy is Often Quite Choosy is an Entertaining Start to the Series. As the parent of a one-time "choosy" child, I can relate to some of Charlie's story! I love finding books that help children (and caregivers) discuss topics like risk-taking and comfort zones. This story is an easy-to-read adventure that opens the door for discussion about "picky" behavior--and helps readers find the willingness to follow Charlie's lead and try something new.
Fun Illustrations Join with Easy to Read Rhymes for a Fun Story Adventure. There are some emotions for readers to consider as Charlie grows from quite choosy to enjoying some adventures. The pages are easy to read and easy for readers to understand. While the story is short, the messages are quite large for readers!
Would I Recommend Charlie Chaloosy is Often Quite Choosy by Brad Mason, Ed.D.? This story is a fun book for readers--and a great start to a lesson-learning series. I would recommend it to parents and caregivers of "choosy" little ones. I especially liked the ending, where the author gives the readers a couple of pages to customize the book with their own story continuation. These pages are perfect to see if readers can remedy a bit of their own choosiness after following Charlie's lead.  I enjoyed this book and look forward to more from the series.

About the Author

My passion for children's literature stems from 30+ years in education and my re-entry into bedtime stories with the addition of my beautiful grandchildren. I created Charlie as a means for children to learn with Charlie by having a growth mindset when it comes to facing new experiences and learning new things. Children live in a world that is traveling ever faster and my desire is to help them slow down and enjoy childhood through the adventures of Charlie Chaloosy. I hope children have fun with Charlie while engaging their minds through stories that encourage them to read, write, illustrate, and dream a little.
