Charlie's Chalk Stick
One day Charlie, a hobo, hopped off the two o'clock train. After forming a friendship with an injured dog at a hobo village, Charlie meets a group of children at a lemonade stand. Through the use of his chalk stick, Charlie teaches the children a new language - the hobo language. Will the children judge Charlie by his appearance? Or will they have a change of heart? Deftly written by Renee Wendinger and charmingly illustrated by Sharon Grey, "Charlie's Chalk Stick" is a delightfully engaging children's book based on a historic figure born out of America's Great Depression -- the hobo. "Charlie's Chalk Stick" is the kind of story that will give children the opportunity to visit a particular period in America's past while learning something valuable about the human condition at the same time. While very highly recommended for elementary school and community library children's book collections, it should be noted for parents, aunts, uncles, and grandparents.
