This book and puppet is ideal for families who are video chatting with children. This book includes child attention strategies.

About this project

The set features a hardbound picture book and a puppet that resembles a Cavalier King Charles spaniel. The basic principle of The Charlie the Cavalier is to connect children with loved ones while they cannot be together due to distance or other circumstances. It can help children feel confident knowing that Charlie is protecting their loved ones while they are away.

 Charlie can help you gain, and maintain, children’s attention during video chatting sessions by interacting with them. Through the Documenting Charlie’s Travels on-line link, children can even view Charlie’s travels online. They can see that they are not alone. 

 Many families and friends cannot be in the same physical location as their loved ones. That does not mean they are not loved. We can all stay connected to our loved ones, no matter where they are in the world!

WHERE YOUR PLEDGE COMES IN: 

I am trying to kickstart this book by paying for an illustrator.  The book is already written and formatted.  The cost of this will just pay for the illustrator, kickstarter fees, and the rewards.  

Illustrator Information

The illustrator is Ginko Lee who currently resides in Pasadena, CA.  

First Few Lines of the Book- Charlie the Cavalier Begs For Attention

You really want your loved ones to stay

But sometimes they just have to go away.    

You can’t always be in the same place.

 And you can’t possibly fit in their suitcase!   

But Charlie The Cavalier can. 

Meet Charlie. He is our new family friend

 Ruff! Ruff! 

On him we can always depend!

Risks and challenges

The only risk is having the illustrator complete the work on time. She said it would take 3 weeks to complete the project.
