Book Review: Lola at the Library

Posted on Updated on

Lola at the Library 

Written by Anna McQuinn
Illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw 
Published April 4, 2006 by Charlesbridge Publishing
Topics: Reading, Library, Books
Ages: 2+, 32 pages 

Every Tuesday, Lola and her mommy visit the library. She carefully puts all her books in her backpack to return. Lola enjoys spending time in the children’s area  where she listens to stories and songs. After storytime, Lola takes her time and picks new books to check out. When Lola and her mommy are finished checking out books they get a snack after visiting the library. Before bed, Lola’s mommy reads a library book to her.

Lola at the Library is a simple and sweet story about a young girl visiting the library. The book is a great introduction about the library. It takes many trips to the library for children to become comfortable, feel safe, and most importantly desire to come back. Now that I’m an adult it sometimes feels weird if I didn’t make my weekly library visit! Thanks Mom! 🙂

Celebrate National Library Week!
