When Charley Met Grampa-OPTIONAL

Hest, Amy When Charley Met Grampa.  Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury. PICTURE BOOK.  Candlewick Press, 2013. $15.99. This book is about a little boy named Henry who gets a new dog.  The dog’s name is Charley.  Henry’s Grampa (yes, it’s spelled ‘Grampa’) comes for a visit but isn’t sure if he is fond of dogs.  Grampa’s cap is caught in a gust of wind and carried away.  Charley knows what to do and immediately runs after the cap.  Grampa is now a fan of Charley!  I liked the detailed illustrations of this book.  The pictures were kid friendly and told a lot of the story by their incredible detail and fun colors.  The story was very sweet and tender.  The only thing I didn't like was that the story was a little slow and didn't really keep my attention. Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  OPTIONAL. Student Reviewer: JL- age 11.
