Charlie's Boat by Kit Chase

picture book


The third book of the Playtime with Friends series, this is Kit Chase’s charming adventure story starring Lulu, Charlie, and Oliver. 

Charlie, Oliver, and Lulu love to play outside together. One fine day they all go fishing, but Charlie doesn’t have much fun—all he can catch are sticks. Next, they build little boats and have a race, but, once again, things don’t go very well. Charlie’s boat comes in last.

Things seem pretty gloomy until Oliver comes up with a plan. They build a special boat they can all play on, together!

Charlie's Boat comes signed by author and illustrator, Kit Chase.

Kirkus Review:

"Minimal, simple text, just right for young readers and listeners, straightforwardly relates the story, while Chase’s soft and appealing watercolor-and-ink illustrations, charming and succinct, capture the joys and frustrations of childhood with gentle humor and precision. Children will be drawn in by the bonhomie of the tale and the support and playfulness of the friends as values of creativity, resilience, patience, helpfulness, and compassion are emphasized without a trace of didacticism.

A pleasant tale with realistic and lovable characters successfully delivers subtle lessons couched in warmth and playfulness."
