Children’s book: Charlene the Star
Have you ever felt like you didn’t know where you belonged? If so, you felt similar to Charlene the Star. This beautiful red horse belonged to a family of famous racehorses. But what would happen if she didn’t like racing? Her best friends, Shy Ann and Blossom couldn’t wait for a real race to happen. In the first book of the Charlene the Star children’s books, Charlene struggles to find her skill. Her mom insists she tries it, even though Charlene protests.
