He is based on one of the existing mascot characters used by Co-operative Childcare to promote their core values. Charlie is joined in this rhyming picturebook by four friends – Ping, Ela, Alice & Ebo –   and they have fun as they create some amazing things together!

Each of Charlie’s Little Pioneer friends represents one of the organisation’s DOES values: Democracy, Openness, Equality & Social Responsibility.  I’m already busy working on the next book in the series which features a girl called Ping and introduces concepts of democracy for children in the Early Years.
