Charlie loves things that go—planes, trains, bicycles, scooters, and even spaceships! He also loves to share in the fun of each mode of transportation with his dad. But, for Charlie, the best ride of all is when his dad swoops him up onto his shoulders for a piggyback ride! The first in a fresh, new board-book series takes the evergreen concept of transportation and gives it a tender, loving twist. Perfect for new dads and Father’s Day promotions, Charlie Rides captures a child’s love for transportation while also affirming that the quality time shared between father and son is what means the most.

We loved following cute Charlie on his adventures with his Dad. Whether on airplanes, spaceships or on boats, Charlie loves anything that go. This board book is a quick and fun read with a rhyming scheme that makes it an enjoyable story. The cute pictures remind us that among Charlie's adventures, spending time with Dad is the best one of all! 
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
