I Am Too Absolutely Small for School by Lauren ChildThe childrens relationship is refreshingly noncombative, with Charlie as the protective and affectionate older brother who is appreciative of, rather than annoyed by, his sisters quirkiness. - SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL (starred review)
Lola is not so sure about school. After all, why would she need to count higher than ten when she never eats more than ten cookies at a time? Once again, its up to ever-patient big brother Charlie to persuade Lola that school is worthwhile — and that her invisible friend, Soren Lorensen, will be welcome, too.
Charlie and Lola: I Am Too Absolutely Small for School
Picture Books. Charlie's little sister Lola is nearly big enough to go to school - but Lola is not so sure. She thinks it probably would be useful to read and write and count, but she doesn't really have time for school - she's much too busy doing extremely important things at home. And, besides, Lola's invisible friend, Soren Lorensen, is slightly nervous about going to school on his own A tale of first-day-at-school worries addresses childrens' fears with warmth, humour, and a lot of fun. This is the board book edition of the classic picture book.
If you have a child who is starting school this year now is the time to start reading picture books about characters who are also going through the same experience. Eventually she agrees to go because her imaginary friend Soren Lorenson is going. And of course she has a wonderful first day! I would definitely include I am TOO absolutely small for school in a list of books to prepare a child for the experience. Thanks for sharing X readwithme. Charlie and Lola are great fun!
