Lola Reads to Leo

Anna McQuinn, illus. by Rosalind Beardshaw. Charlesbridge, $15.95 (32p) ISBN 978-1-58089-403-6

In her third book, Lola has a new baby brother. Lola learns how to help take care of Leo—and how better than by sharing her love of reading? “Lola holds her best bear story while Mommy feeds him.” Being a big sister means new responsibilities, and everyone is busy, but Lola knows that her parents still have time for her. Beardshaw’s smudgy acrylic depictions of quiet family moments should reassure readers who are anxious about the arrival of a new sibling. Ages 2–5. (Feb.)
