The Book

This sweet book is a celebration of the love of reading!  Lola and her mommy go every Tuesday to the library together.  She remembers to pack last week's books in her backpack to take back and of course she needs her library card.  She goes to the children's section and picks out new books to share with mommy at bedtime.  Both she and her mom love to read her books together before she sleeps.  

This charming board book highlights the happiness of reading and encourages the use of the local library.  I whole-heartedly recommend it.
