What do David Attenborough and a rebel "Doge" have in common? This powerful story of friendship, and allegiance to our earthly home, will turn your kids into story enthusiasts and so much more.... You'll see a book with an award-winning text compete with their screens. Get an audiobook that grabs them!

Dive instantly into Charlie's world of secrets! A rebel, "Doge", and his friends decide to use their wits and their surfboards to take on the bad guys. Charlie and his friends face villains in this canine James Bond story, but they must also navigate the challenges that arise between friends. Charlie is an enchanting hero and a powerful role model for kids in this age group. Self-confidence, leadership, the importance of "speaking your mind", and tips for lasting friendship are all wrapped up in the story.

Children's educational topics: friendship dynamics, leadership styles, early self-confidence, environmental conservation, green turtles, and canine surfing. Excellent adjunct to classroom relationship discussions as well as environmental teaching units.

First Watch is a middle-grade level adventure book and appropriate for boys and girls ages 8-12, but the story is timeless.
