When Charlie and his mom reached the Park Avenue entrance to Memory Park, they could already smell the sweetness from the trees and flowers planted for the blind. So begins Anne Abbott’s Charlie Goes to Memory Park, an endearing children’s story exuding timelessness and the rewards of traveling back to history.

At the Memory Park, Charlie Cain comes across a beautiful fountain halfway down the park, hundreds of acorns on the walkways and benches, and a lovely garden for the blind. While making their way into the garden, Charlie and his mom meet Mr. Charles Monroe. It looks like there’s a lot more than feeding the pigeons and watching football that is in store for Charlie and his mother at the Memory Park.

On each lovingly illustrated page, the reader joins Charlie and his mother as they make their way inside the Memory Park. The delight in reading Abbott lies in the fact that Charlie Goes to Memory Park is more than just a joyfully-illustrated story; it is a celebration of history as well as finding friendship in the most unlikely of places.
