Spunky Lola embarks on a new adventure — the first day of school! Lola and her family prepare for the first day of school the night before, then get up early, take pictures, and head to class. Lola puts her things in her cubby, chooses her activities, reads, plays, and has a snack. Before she knows it, it's time to sing the good-bye song and rush into Mommy's arms for a warm reunion.
Lola's excitement about her first day is positively infectious, and kids will appreciate her empowering and reassuring thoughts about how school isn't so different from activities they already love. Her inviting classroom will make readers wonder what they'll discover in their own! This charming addition to the beloved Lola Reads series is a comforting, cheerful read that demystifies the school day for preschoolers and kindergarteners.
"After years of everyday joys with McQuinn and Beardshaw's Lola, readers now watch her start school. It 'will be a bit like story time at the library, but Lola will stay by herself.' The little black girl 'knows what to expect' because she's visited the school with her mom. She is prepared with gifts from loved ones — 'fun pencils' from Nana, a water bottle from Ty.... Even at this milestone, Lola still appears quite tiny, and the text is no more complex than in previous books, making this a seamless transition from Lola's younger days to her new life in school. Both perfect for Lola fans and likely to earn her ever more readers." — Kirkus Reviews
