How Tia Lola Came to Stay: The Tia Lola Stories (Julia Alvarez) - With her brilliantly hued flower-print dresses, her maracas and tambor, and the migrating beauty mark over her lipsticked mouth, Tia Lola stands out in Vermont like a tropical bird in a snowstorm. Her nephew, 10-year-old Miguel, just wants to fit in to his new home. He and his mother and sister have just moved here from New York following his parents' divorce. With his black hair and brown skin, it's hard enough already without the flamboyant antics of his friendly, nutty aunt, visiting from the Dominican Republic. But even while she is dancing her merengues in front of his new friends and painting the white farmhouse purple, Tia Lola is also weaving a magical spell of love and support that Miguel and his wounded family sorely need. Miguel's growing appreciation for his crazy aunt's ways, and the entire town's admiration and respect for an outsider who, without even speaking the same language, wins the hearts of all, is a funny, uplifting story. This book is part of a series. Recommended for ages 8-12.

Lola at the Library (Anna McQuinn) - Part of a series. 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. Recommended for ages baby to preschool.
Lola Loves Stories (Anna McQuinn) - Lola's daddy takes her to the library every Saturday, where she finds "excellent books," and every night her mommy or daddy reads them to her. The next day Lola acts out the story. On Sunday she's a fairy princess; on Monday she takes her toy animals "on fantastic trips to places like Paris"; on Wednesday she's a tiger, etc. Each new book and day provides Lola with a variety of tales to play out, with the last one--which is about a wild monster--posing the question, "What will Lola be tomorrow?" The final page shows her in a wolf suit just like Max's. The library books, the pretending, and the incorporation of the days of the week work together as a simple and pleasing premise. Beardshaw's acrylic illustrations depict the multicultural kids and Lola's black family with childlike charm, while the title will have librarians, parents and booksellers smiling. Alert: The book will be an invitation for lap kids to follow Lola's lead--not such a bad thing. Recommended for ages 4-8.
Nico & Lola: Kindness Shared Between a Boy and a Dog (Meggan Hill) - Nico's aunt asks her nephew if he would be so kind as to watch her pug, Lola, while she's away. Excited, Nico agrees, but later begins to wonder, "How will I be so kind?" So begins a pleasant story about sharing everyday kindnesses. This book has a wealth of meaningful messages like, "being kind is showing concern for others." Each message is illustrated by the actions of either Nico or Lola as they spend their time together doing doggy and boy activities. Each new page shows the duo participating in excellent behaviors: cleaning, helping one another, sharing, exercising, and getting along with others. The rural, verdant setting adds to the appeal of this story. The photos suffer from some poor composition and digital editing, but the adorable nature of the subjects more than makes up for this. A good choice for teaching core values, this book will have wide appeal for young audiences. Recommended for ages 4-8.
The Taming of Lola: A Shrew Story (Ellen Weiss) - Quarrels can provide fun drama, and in this hilarious picture book about a shrew family, grumpy Granny Lola tells a story about when she was little that is far from a tale of youthful innocence. According to Granny’s yarn, when she behaved badly as a child, she got everything that she wanted. Little Lola is tiny, but she has a huge temper, and the ink-and-watercolor pictures show her in frilly skirts acting with such stubbornness and bad temper that everyone just lets her have her way. Then her cousin Lester comes to stay, and he is worse than she is. The cousins yell at each other, nose to nose: “I’m in charge!” “Says who?” “Well I don’t care if you care!” The fighting only stops when they both fall asleep exhausted (“Screaming is relaxing. You should try it some time”). The final wry twist brings a satisfying surprise. Adults will get the Shakespeare reference, but for kids, the children’s triumph over the powerful grown-ups is the best part of the story. A great read-aloud. Recommended for ages 4-8.
