Lola en la biblioteca

By: Anna McQuinn / Illustrated by: Rosalind Beardshaw

Lola loves the library!

Lola loves Tuesdays. That's when she and her mommy go to the library. Lola meets her friends there. They share books and don't have to be quiet all the time. The nice librarian tells stories. There is a big machine that buzzes Lola's books in and out, and she can take any books she wants home with her. Lola and her mommy always stop for a treat on the way home. No wonder Lola loves the library.

This gentle story of growing with books encourages little ones to discover the joy of visiting the library.

Sweet, bright illustrations are from a kids-eye point of view. Perfect for a lap read or story time, this is also a book young readers will love holding onto themselves.

Kirkus Reviews

It's Tuesday: library day and Lola's favorite time of the weekly routine.

At the library, Lola can visit "a special section... just for children," listen to stories, sing songs and select a new batch of books to borrow. While her mommy is not quite out of bed yet, Lola is ready to go with her own library card and backpack filled with books to return. This eager, happy toddler gives readers a complete tour of a conventional weekly visit to the library that includes, on the walk home, a snack of cappuccino for her mommy and juice for Lola. Beardshaw's vividly colored acrylic paintings of a mother and child's morning outing in their racially mixed neighborhood complements the classic library sconces charged with a child's vibrant enthusiasm. The simple, significant message will ring true with every librarian, teacher, caregiver and parent as the day concludes with Lola's nightly bedtime story.

Everyone should begin and end the day with a good book.

School Library Journal

Lola loves Tuesdays because that is the day she and her mother go to the library. Everything about the trip is an exciting adventure -- from packing her backpack with books and her all-important library card, to storytimes and singing, to choosing new books and the walk home, when they always stop for a special treat. But the best time of all is when Mommy reads her story at bedtime. Simple text and large, bright acrylic illustrations of this engaging African-American child makes this selection just right for sharing. Perfect for instilling a love of libraries and books in the youngest patrons, it's a winner.
