CHARLIE AND LOLA

Snow Is My Favorite and My Best
Age Range: 3 - 7

KIRKUS REVIEW

Charlie and Lola are back and this time it’s about to snow. Charlie warns Lola that it may happen while she’s sleeping, but Lola, in love with snow, is not convinced. First witness to the initial flurry, Lola, comforted, drifts off as the snow piles up. The following morning the girls and their friends go to the park to make snow angels, go sledding and build a snowman (and a snow dog). By the next day, though, the snow has melted and Lola is mournful. Why can’t it snow every day? It’s up to Charlie to convince her that moderation is important in all things, even snow, and a quick trip to the earth’s colder regions seems to do the trick. Besides, there might be something special in the freezer. While the artwork is taken from the television show and the text is based on a script by someone else, Child’s perfectly captured children’s voices, vividly realized characters and appealing collage style are very much in evidence here. A delectable treat for a snowy—or not-so-snowy—day. (Picture book. 3-7)
