Reviews from other readers:

"It is often a challenge to find children's books with black characters that aren't overwhelmed with historical narratives or self-affirming gobbly-gook (be like Harriet Tubman! You're special! No really!) The little touches make this book unique and lovely: Lola's soft cloud of unraveled hair when she wakes up, the way she kneels on the floor during story time at the library, or how her mom spoons a little cappuccino foam in her mouth during their snack-time. I read this book to my daughter almost every day!" -Qiana, on GoodReads

"I love this book. I am biracial, and I wish I had had books like this as a child. But I love getting books with diverse characters for my 2 year old multiracial daughter. This one is great because it has nothing to do with race -- it is just a black child going to the library and enjoying her books. My daughter and I both love it." -M. Dobbs, Astoria, New York
