Charlene the Star

From Amazon:

Charlene the Star was born into a family of famous racehorses. Unlike her big brother, Charlie, Charlene decides she doesn’t like racing. How will she explain this to her mom? How does she show her trainers she doesn’t like racing? Will she become a model instead? Will Charlene discover her natural gift? Her career path takes many twists and turns before she finds her place to shine.  She may surprise you with her unusual talent.


Charlene the Star is second in the series of  Charlie Charlene the Star books.  It is related to Charlie the Horse because Charlie is Charlene’s big brother.This tale demonstrates that it’s okay to have different skills than your friends. Every child is unique and their skills should be applauded.

My Review:

What a lovely story, by Deanie Humphrys-Dunne, teaching children that they first must try something before they will know if they like it and are good at it. The story encourages kids to try other things such as sports and to find out what they love to and that they can be the best at some of the time. Children are encouraged to remember what they learned with questions at the end followed by answers. Great way to get kids talking. Cute illustrations. Five stars.
