I am ashamed to say I had never heard of this book before. In my 28 years I have never heard of Charlie the Tramp. I recently got a chance to review a special 50th anniversary hardcover copy of this book, and instantly fell in love! Charlie the Tramp is about a beaver, named Charlie, who wants to follow his dream of becoming a tramp. A tramp just tramps around and does what he wants to all day, and sleeps in fields at night. Unless it rains, then they sleep in barns. His family is not too excited when Charlie reveals his dream, but they are supportive. Charlie goes out and lives the tramp life until one night, when the stream wakes him and he builds a dam. When Charlie did not make it to breakfast the next morning, his family goes looking for him. They come across Charlie’s pond he made and stopped to check it out. It looked too familiar to them. It resembled the ponds grandfather had made. It was then Charlie had woke up and said it was he who made the dam and pond!
I think this book has a wonderful message for kids! Always follow your dreams, and with proper family teaching and guidance, they will make the right decisions! This is a book we will cherish in our home for a long time to come! I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to review this book! I rate this book a 5/5 stars!
