Glowing with love and security, this marks a strong debut for its author. Cooper's rich, lucent art-in the style he used so successfully for Howard's Chita's Christmas Tree (1989)-is a perfect complement to the affectionate story.

  • This is a great book to read to your daughter and then pack a copy for future generations. This became a memory for my daughter and I when she was small we read it all the time:) I gave her a copy of the book as a gift when she was 1,8 she read it again and then put it away, like the elephant in the book to save for a time when she might also have a daughter to read it to.

  • This is an old book and not very popular so I was thrilled to find a copy. My 6 year old daughter loves this book! We gave her this book and had an elephant made to match the elephant in the book. It was her favorite Christmas present.

  • Favorite childhood book! Wanted a copy for my classroom now.

  • A remembered favorite that was difficult to find in new condition. This one did not disappoint. Thank you!

  • One of my favorite books! Looking for it for a special friends little girl named Charlotte. Can't wait to get it to her.

  • This is a long time family favorite that is a quiet affirmation of the connections between generations. Laura can't go to sleep so she asks her mother to tell her a story of when she was young and how the stuffed elephant, Charlotte, came to be. Through the story the child see things change, and that mistakes can be fixed, but family goes on. Lovely, evocative artwork here. Makes a nice shower gift for the mother to be of a girl.

  • My daughters and I love this story, it is so full of love! It is getting more and more rare to find good childrens books that mix words, cadence & quality illustration. This is one that ranks up there with the best. It is simple and innocent, and the illustrations add to the drama of the story wonderfully.

    I highly recommend this - it is one that you will enjoy reading again and again!

    In Laura Charlotte, Laura is having trouble going to sleep and asks her mother to tell her the story of Laura Charlotte. Even though she has heard it a million times, she enjoys learning where her name comes from. To her surprise, this same elephant was her mother's and had received the name "Charlotte" because of the beauty of the name. This stuffed elephant, Charlotte, grows to be Laura's security object, which can sometimes, states Maria Nikolajeva, have a deeper context and meaning. Many of the words and illustrations also affect the way that the reader sees the main character as an innocent child who grows to need the elephant. She is a child who needs the elephant to help calm her fears and to be a friend, rather than a child who used the elephant as a play toy. Floyd Cooper, the illustrator of Laura Charlotte, makes it easy to understand the drawings in the story. Cooper draws with pastels and soft colors to represent pictures of children innocently. When seeing these illustrations, readers can understand the story from a child's standpoint. Cooper also places many of the shadows and dark colors away from Laura so that the reader can focus on her feelings. One point in the story, Laura loses Charlotte, and the reader can see the darkness outside the window. Laura looks out into the trees and says that she wants to find Charlotte because she knows that Charlotte is afraid. Laura tells this story in first person point of view, which makes a more personable story, than if the narrator had told it. Notably, the dialogue is written in small black print. This font does detract from the illustrations but still sustains the importance of the plot, due to its size. Maria Nikolajeva's 1998 article, "Exit Children's Literature?" states that the presence of one object can easily be seen as the representation of something else. "If we regard these figures as metaphorical representations of the weak and the oppressed or as the child's projections of his or her own desires, we should not be misled by the outer form" (222). According to Nikolajeva, children often use inanimate objects to help cover fears and hidden secrets. Like many children, Laura uses a stuffed animal as a security object. Laura uses Charlotte as an excuse for herself, when she speaks of the elephant as being afraid of the dark. She makes sure that she has the elephant with her at all times. Just as Nikolajeva says, Laura may be afraid of the night, and attributing the fear to Charlotte helps Laura over come her fear, since they are there for each other. The reader can see that Laura is using the elephant as an excuse. Seeing the attachment that Laura feels, through the text and illustrations, toward Charlotte, the reader can see how much she understands the importance of the elephant. Laura's grandmother wanted to name the elephant Charlotte because of the beauty of the name. It meant a lot when Laura knew she had been named "Laura Charlotte" because her grandmother had said it was the most beautiful name she had ever heard. Looking from the perspective of the reader makes it easier to understand this remarkable children's story in its entirety, coming from Laura Charlotte's standpoint as a child.
