I recently had the pleasure of receiving a wonderful book called Chuckie makes mistakes (sometimes) from a very kind author named Amy Jensen. I am grateful to have the opportunity to review this lovely book and be able to share it with all of you.
Who is Amy Jensen?
Amy Jensen is an Author, Playwright and Vocal Music Teacher from New Jersey in the United States. In addition to her many wonderful roles, her most important role is being mommy to two wonderful Chocolate Lab’s named Chuckie and Nestlé. These sweet pups are her inspiration for her delightful debut book called Chuckie makes mistakes (sometimes). Based on our reaction here at Love Early Education, I imagine all her fans can’t wait to receive another instalment of Chuckie and Nestlé’s adventures.
Who is Chuckie?
Chuckie is a handsome and sometimes mischievous Chocolate Lab who lives with mommy and daddy Amy Jensen and her husband Roger. Chuckie also lives with a Chocolate Lab named Nestlé and a cat named Bert.

Chuckie makes mistakes (sometimes)
From the first time we saw this book we loved the beautiful and unique illustration by Ulana Zahajkewycz, whose pictures really bring the story to life. My son Luke absolutely adores the doggie and was thrilled to be able to see some real life photos of Chuckie in the book and when we started to follow him online, we are definitely #TeamChuckie .
This book is beautifully written and its rhythmic sentence structures are perfect for young readers. Not only is it well written but it has a touching underlying message about making mistakes. The story explains that even though Chuckie tries to be on his best behaviour sometimes he makes mistakes and forgets to use his manners. Chuckie’s playful and mischievous nature is a sweet and funny way to teach children about the importance of making mistakes in order to learn and would help promote growth mindset, so this story is an ideal teaching tool for teachers and parents. The book also gently teaches children the importance of being kind and considerate towards others with a focus on good manners. The book is extremely engaging and in this house we can’t seem to get enough of it, my son has asked to read Chuckie every morning since it has arrived.
This book is a must have for children who are animal lovers. It is also an ideal teaching tool for parents or teachers looking to teach children about good manners, kindness and and growth mindset. It’s the type of story that the whole family will love and that you will all read time and time again.
