In this amiable picture book, Lola and her mother visit the public library each Tuesday for a morning of stories, songs, and book borrowing. A snack at a cafe and the walk home complete the ritual. Beardshaw's cozy paintings, with their soft edges and bright colors, convey Lola's love for her mother and their library visits.
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 scenes 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. (Picture book. 2-5)
School Library Journal
PreS-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 a story at bedtime. Simple text and large, bright acrylic illustrations of this engaging African-American child make this selection just right for sharing. Perfect for instilling a love of libraries and books in the youngest patrons, it's a winner.-Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
