A New Home for Charlie is available on ITunes and Google Play. A portion of the proceeds benefits Rocket Dog Rescue, an organization that helps foster Chihuahuas and other dogs while finding forever homes. Storyteller, Lisa DuPre' was inspired to create the story after watching the smallest of her three Chihuahuas struggle to find his place in the doggie relationship.
"My inspiration for "A New Home..." came from realizing I could help my first grandchild build positive friendships by teaching her through the eyes of a dog learning how to navigate relationships," says Lisa DuPre'. "Friendships require give and take, and children need to learn this early in order to build confidence and resiliency in life so they can overcome their own personal challenges."
