S:6 E:223 Author Charles Schoen threw away the “what to expect” books for new parents and focused on what his severely disabled child could do, When his son Charlie was just 3 mo old. Charlie wasn’t going to reach all the milestones that other children do, but Schoen was determined to help his son live a full, happy life.
Schoen’s compelling new children’s book series, Adventures with Charlie, was inspired by his real-life experiences raising a child with special needs. Written for preschoolers and early readers, Adventures with Charlie serves as both an inspiration to families confronting the challenges of physical and/or mental disabilities, while also introducing typical peers to children with differences.
Charlie is nonjudgmental. Schoen said in a recent interview. “And so, he literally is an example of loving everyone just for being there — as opposed to who they are or what they do or what they look like.”
Through Adventures with Charlie, parents and children can follow Charlie as he learns and grows through new experiences.
In the 1st book of the series, Charlie Goes to School, we get to explore a day of school from Charlie’s perspective, as he travels on the wind of his wheelchair, meets his friends, gathers knowledge + arrives back home flying through the air. In Charlie Goes to Tommy’s Barber Shop + Charlie Goes to Waffle House, children can learn from the ways in which Charlie interacts + makes friends in his community. Charlie Plays Baseball shares the motivational story of a baseball league that caters to children W/ special needs + physical challenges. Charlie and the Half-Marathon will have readers cheering as Charlie + his father team-up for this exciting new adventure.
