Lola and her daddy go to the library every Saturday to pick out books. The stories she reads with her family throughout the week lend inspiration to her playtime, stretching her imagination and physical limits. Lola becomes a fairy princess, a pilot flying to exotic places, a farmer, and even a \"wild and wicked\" monster. The simple and straightforward text is easy to read, and the bright acrylic illustrations are eye-catching close-ups of Lola absorbed in books and in play. This engaging depiction of a child's enthusiasm for being read to is an excellent choice for libraries.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/blockquote\u003e\n\u003cblockquote\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003ci\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eKirkus Reviews\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/i\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eLola's daddy takes her to the library every Saturday, where she finds \"excellent books,\" and every night her mommy or daddy reads them to her.

The library books, the pretending, and the incorporation of the days of the week work together as a simple and pleasing premise. Beardshaw's acrylic illustrations depict the multicultural kids and Lola's black family with childlike charm, while the title will have librarians, parents and booksellers smiling. Alert: The book will be an invitation for lap kids to follow Lola's lead--not such a bad thing.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/blockquote\u003e\n\u003cblockquote\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003ci\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePublishers Weekly\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/i\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIn \u003ci\u003eLola at the Library\u003c\/i\u003e (2006), readers learned that bibliophilic Lola and her mother travel to the library every Tuesday. Turns out one trip a week isn't enough: every Saturday, Lola and her father pick out library books, which then become the inspiration for pretend play the rest of the week. \"Tuesday night Lola's mommy reads a story about fierce tigers. The next day Lola chases her friend Orla all over the jungle\" (actually a backyard that the two girls have stocked with stuffed animals). McQuinn and Beardshaw keep their young African-American heroine firmly rooted in the real world, and while the sturdy characterizations and cheery, saturated acrylic colors are never less than genial, the literalness starts to feel a bit ho-hum--it's almost like reading a recipe book for \"Let's Pretend.\" A nod to \u003ci\u003eWhere the Wild Things Are\u003c\/i\u003e in the final pages (it's the last book Lola and her father read) may remind readers all too well of what a real flight of fancy looks like.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWhen three-year-old Lola and her father read stories, Lola becomes the hero of each, using her imagination to become a fairy princess, a construction worker, and even a scary monster. Lola is just as sure to delight preschoolers in this quiet read-aloud as she did in McQuinn’s \u003ci\u003eLola Loves the Library\u003c\/i\u003e. A simple text and soft pastels make this a charming, if slight, read, and many families and teachers will be thrilled to find a book featuring an African-American girl and her father engaged in early literacy activities. The story leaves readers wondering about (and discussing) Lola’s next inspiration.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/blockquote\u003e\n\u003cblockquote\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003ci\u003eLanguage Arts\u003c\/i\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eLola's daddy takes her to the library on Saturdays and once they are home, he reads Lola the books they borrowed. After hearing her daddy read the first story about a fairy princess, Lola spends the next day wearing a fancy dress and a sparkling crown. She is a fabulous fairy princess! Lola can achieve anything she wants if she tries, just like the people in the books that her dad reads for her. One day she is a princess, the next day she is a ship traveler, and another day she is a hunter. Accompanied by beautiful pictures by Rosalind Beardshaw, the book is perfect to show young children how a love of books and libraries can take them, at least in their imaginations, to adventure, love, and knowledge.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/blockquote\u003e\n\u003c!-- - - - - - - - - - - ENTER DOWNLOADABLES BELOW - - - - - - - - - - --\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003eDownloadables\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003cp style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cimg alt=\"\" src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0750\/0101\/files\/lola-le-encantan-cuentos-cvr.jpg?259\" style=\"display: block; float: none; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"btn-wrapper\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0750\/0101\/files\/lola-le-encantan-cuentos-cvr-hires.zip?259\" class=\"product-btn\"\u003eDownload the Cover\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c!-- - - - - - - - - - - - ENTER DETAILS BELOW - - - - - - - - - - - --\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003eDetails\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eHardcover\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cbr\u003eISBN: 978-1-58089-258-2\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePaperback\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cbr\u003eISBN: 978-1-58089-259-9\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eE-book\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eISBN: 978-1-60734-552-7 EPUB\u003cbr\u003e ISBN: 978-1-60734-441-4 PDF\u003cbr\u003e For information about purchasing E-books, \u003ca title=\"E-book\" href=\"http:\/\/charlesbridge.myshopify.com\/pages\/e-books\"\u003eclick here\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eEnglish language edition\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cbr\u003eISBN: 978-1-58089-258-2 Hardcover\u003cbr\u003eISBN: 978-1-58089-259-9 Paperback\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAges: 5-8\u003cbr\u003ePage count: 32\u003cbr\u003e8 x 10\u003c\/p\u003e\n[\/TABS]","published_at":"2015-07-30T17:00:00-04:00","created_at":"2015-07-31T10:44:04-04:00","vendor":"Charlesbridge","type":"Children's Book","tags":["Browse by Age_Ages 0-3","Browse by Age_Ages 3-6","Browse by Fiction\/Nonfiction_Fiction","Browse by Format_Picture Book","Browse by Language_Spanish\/Bilingual","Browse by Subject_Early Childhood","Browse by Subject_Story Time \u0026 Play","girl"],"price":795,"price_min":795,"price_max":795,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":5203682305,"title":"Paperback","option1":"Paperback","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"94449","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"A Lola le encantan los cuentos - Paperback","public_title":"Paperback","options":["Paperback"],"price":795,"weight":153,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":8,"inventory_management":"shopify","inventory_policy":"continue","barcode":"978-1-58089-444-9"}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0750\/0101\/products\/lola-loves-stories-spanish-cover.jpg?v=1570196949"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0750\/0101\/products\/lola-loves-stories-spanish-cover.jpg?v=1570196949","options":["Title"],"content":"\u003c!-- - - - - - - - ENTER AUTHOR\/ILLUSTRATOR INFO BELOW - - - - - - - --\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eBy: \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/charlesbridge.myshopify.com\/pages\/anna-mcquinn\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Anna McQuinn bio\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003eAnna McQuinn\u003c\/a\u003e \/ Illustrated by: \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/charlesbridge.myshopify.com\/pages\/rosalind-beardshaw\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Rosalind Beardshaw bio\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003eRosalind Beardshaw\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c!-- - - - - - - - ENTER HEADING BELOW - - - - - - - --\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eLet your imagination run wild!\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003c!-- - - - - - - - ENTER DESCRIPTION BELOW - - - - - - - --\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eLovable Lola is back in this imaginative sequel to the best-selling \u003ci\u003eLola at the Library\u003c\/i\u003e.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eLola loves to go to the library with her daddy.

School Library Journal

The lovable African-American preschooler from Lola at the Library (Charlesbridge, 2006) returns in this whimsical picture book. Lola and her daddy go to the library every Saturday to pick out books. The stories she reads with her family throughout the week lend inspiration to her playtime, stretching her imagination and physical limits. Lola becomes a fairy princess, a pilot flying to exotic places, a farmer, and even a "wild and wicked" monster. The simple and straightforward text is easy to read, and the bright acrylic illustrations are eye-catching close-ups of Lola absorbed in books and in play. This engaging depiction of a child's enthusiasm for being read to is an excellent choice for libraries.

Kirkus Reviews

Lola's daddy takes her to the library every Saturday, where she finds "excellent books," and every night her mommy or daddy reads them to her. The next day Lola acts out the story. On Sunday she's a fairy princess; on Monday she takes her toy animals "on fantastic trips to places like Paris"; on Wednesday she's a tiger, etc. Each new book and day provides Lola with a variety of tales to play out, with the last one--which is about a wild monster--posing the question, "What will Lola be tomorrow?" The final page shows her in a wolf suit just like Max's. The library books, the pretending, and the incorporation of the days of the week work together as a simple and pleasing premise. Beardshaw's acrylic illustrations depict the multicultural kids and Lola's black family with childlike charm, while the title will have librarians, parents and booksellers smiling. Alert: The book will be an invitation for lap kids to follow Lola's lead--not such a bad thing.

Publishers Weekly

In Lola at the Library (2006), readers learned that bibliophilic Lola and her mother travel to the library every Tuesday. Turns out one trip a week isn't enough: every Saturday, Lola and her father pick out library books, which then become the inspiration for pretend play the rest of the week. "Tuesday night Lola's mommy reads a story about fierce tigers. The next day Lola chases her friend Orla all over the jungle" (actually a backyard that the two girls have stocked with stuffed animals). McQuinn and Beardshaw keep their young African-American heroine firmly rooted in the real world, and while the sturdy characterizations and cheery, saturated acrylic colors are never less than genial, the literalness starts to feel a bit ho-hum--it's almost like reading a recipe book for "Let's Pretend." A nod to Where the Wild Things Are in the final pages (it's the last book Lola and her father read) may remind readers all too well of what a real flight of fancy looks like.

When three-year-old Lola and her father read stories, Lola becomes the hero of each, using her imagination to become a fairy princess, a construction worker, and even a scary monster. Lola is just as sure to delight preschoolers in this quiet read-aloud as she did in McQuinn’s Lola Loves the Library. A simple text and soft pastels make this a charming, if slight, read, and many families and teachers will be thrilled to find a book featuring an African-American girl and her father engaged in early literacy activities. The story leaves readers wondering about (and discussing) Lola’s next inspiration.
