Every year my husband and I head off on vacation for a few days to Las Vegas, leaving the kids home with family. We love the time away from our regular life, but we do miss the kids. We make a point of calling home using video chat on Skype. After a long and exhausting day I love to see my kids on the video screen.
Even though I want to chat with the kids I sometimes find it hard to keep their attention. “Charlie the Cavalier Begs for Attention” is an adorable story that helps you interact with your child while you are video chatting. It comes with an cute little puppy puppet that your child can make for you (or you can make it yourself), and guides you through some different activities you can do along with your kids!
My daughter loves to send along one of her favourite stuffed animals so that I don’t get lonely. She always wants to put a large teddy into my suitcase and I try to convince her that the smallest stuffy is much better. My hubby and I travel light and only take carry on luggage, so space is a priority. “Charlie” the puppet is simply a piece of paper that fits into any bag (it even fits in your pocket).
“Charlie the Cavalier Begs for Attention” by Lisa Rusczyk is the perfect story to read along with your child while you are chatting on Skype. It encourages your child to interact with Charlie by helping you sing, whistle, dance and play games like peek-a-boo while video chatting. What child wouldn’t love to watch cute little Charlie sing and dance his way across the computer screen?
The story is just the right length for little ones and the illustrations are bright and colourful. The puppet is printable so if you lose him you simple print out a new one! We’ve read the story several times together at home. Often times we get to one section and end up putting the book down and just playing hide and seek with Charlie or singing random songs.
Before my next vacation I plan on getting my daughter to decorate Charlie. I can’t wait to see how she will customize Charlie. I can visualize her making some paper clothes and hats too! He’ll be the most fashionable dog in Las Vegas next year!
If you are looking for a great interactive story to share with your kids while you have to be separated from your little ones, “Charlie the Cavalier Begs for Attention” is the perfect book for you.
