Little Lola

Lola is sleeping in the park when she is woken up by an apple falling on her head. She has big plans. One of them is to have an adventure. Lola finds a pair of pink glasses, a blue skirt, a red stripped shirt and a pink backpack. Dressed and ready to go, she hops on the school bus.

At school, Lola practices reading, writing, math, art and singing. She especially loves story time and show and tell. Her contribution is a live mouse which causes a mess that Lola promptly puts back in order (almost). School is over and Lola is back at the park for a nap.

Little Lola is the first book for husband-wife team, Julie Saab and David Gothard. It is a perfect first day of school book but it also is a fun beginning reader. There are only a few words on each page, the font is easy to read and some of the harder words are clearly illustrated to help in decoding.  The AR is 1.3 (first grade, third month). The Sonoma County Library has three copies.
