Lola Reads to Leo

978-0-80454-236-4. 19.95.
Lola is a sweet little girl who just loves to read at all times of the day and has a special book for every occasion. Her mother reads to her every night before bed. Lola loves a book about a little girl who gets a baby brother, because Lola is expecting her own baby brother any day. When baby Leo arrives, Lola tries to help out in any way she can. She helps her mom with the dishes and she helps her dad with the laundry. She even helps baby Leo by sharing her favorite books with him whenever he is upset. Lola has the perfect book for potty time, mealtime, when it’s time for a bath, and bedtime. She’s such a good helper that her parents make sure they save stories just for her every night before bed. Rosalind Beardshaw’s colorful acrylic illustrations complement the text. Nikki James reads Anna McQuinn’s story about a contemporary African American family (Charlesbridge, 2012) in a sweet, animated voice that will appeal to young listeners. The lively background music, composed by Peter Calo, is a great companion to the story. Page-turn signals are optional. A perfect choice for families expecting a new addition.–Jenny Ventling, Dayton Metro Library, OH
