The illustrations are so charming and we are a huge fan of Sarah Jane's work - we have several of her prints in our kids' rooms. But I think the most delightful part of the book for us has been the story by her husband, Kenneth Wright.
Both of my kids love to create and draw and write and have huge imaginations, and I love that the main character Lola Dutch has a little group of animal friends that love her and support her creative endeavors in different ways - they jump in and start creating with her, and Bear is there offering quiet support. I had a really engaging discussion with my son yesterday (he's 11, and I didn't think he'd even care to read it, but he's read it as many times as my 7 year old daughter has) about how the sweet Bear is such a good, steady presence and loves Lola whatever she does - even if she makes a big mess creating her works of art. And then he compared the Bear to his dad and I and how we support him in what he tries to do. (which may have made me teary-eyed.) I love that he got it. That we make space for people to create and dream and be who they are, and we support each other with who we are.
All that from a sweet little story about a girl with a fabulously big personality.
Lola & Dutch is the NEW STANDARD for children's books. The message of creativity, exploration, and imagination is a MUST in today's world. Sarah and Kenneth brilliantly tell the story of Lola and her friends. What many would mistakingly call an "ordinary" day, Lola see's as "another AMAZING day!"
In order to make it in the world today, you need the right mindset, and Lola shares her way of thinking in a fun and inspiring way.
Sarah is a BRILLIANT illustrator. Her art feels so familiar and nostalgic. You can feel Lola's excitement and energy through the colors and details in each page.
If you are tired of you kids spending too much time in front of a screen and want to jumpstart their imagination, then this book will do just that. My 4 year old daughter requests this book every night. And her 9 year old brother loves to listen in as well.
It even comes with a fun surprise inside the book sleeve.
