Chargie’s Challenge for Literacy


Chargie’s mission is to inspire a life-long love of reading by creating a fun, safe and supportive learning environment for kids. So he created Chargie’s Challenge for Literacy: a book of the month club and reading tour dedicated to challenging kids and parents to join the reading team.

Together, Chargie and Charlie visit elementary schools, bookstores, and other venues, reading to kids and signing them up for Chargie’s Pick of the Month club. Kids get a collectible membership coin, and each participating school receives a small Chargie Bear keepsake.

To bring Chargie and Charlie to your school or educational event, please visit our Keynotes & Programs for Elementary page, and then Contact Us

Kids can follow Chargie’s Pick of the Month book here on Chargie’s page, and send reviews of the book to Chargie at

The best reviews will be featured on this page, too!

Chargie’s Pick of the Month


Little Quack's New Friend

When Little Quack brings home his new frog friend, the other ducklings aren’t sure they want to play with someone who is so different from themselves. But it doesn’t take long for all the ducklings to realize that making a new friend is the most important thing. Available as a board book, this story is wonderful for little kids and big kids, too.
