Charlie & Mouse by Laurel Snyder - ADVISABLE

Snyder, Laurel Charlie & Mouse, illustrated by Emily Hughes. PICTURE BOOK. Chronicle Books, 2017. $15 9781452131535

Charlie and Mouse are brothers.  It’s the day of the neighborhood party, so they gather their friends along the way to the park. Later, they decide to earn money selling rocks, no one wants more rocks, but other means of earning money present themselves. Finally we see them stall going to bed.

This is a terrific beginning reader.  4 chapters, the darling illustrations remind me of Maurice Sendak and the simple text is perfect for the young independent reader.
