I Am Too Absolutely Small for School (Charlie and Lola)
lauren child's inimitable brother-sister pair takes on another childhood bugaboo — the first day of school — with the help of charlie's resourcefulness and lola's imaginary friend.
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? And why write letters when you have a telephone? Once again, it's 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. Lauren child's delightful sibling duo returns to tackle first-day-of-school jitters with their own special brand of energy and humor.
favorite characters help ease the transition back to school (or, for newcomers, through the classroom door). Siblings lola and charlie (first introduced in i will never not ever eat a tomato) return in i am too absolutely small for school by lauren child. Charlie must convince lola to give school a chance, though she is full of reasons why she doesn't need it: i don't need to learn up to one hundred. I already know up to ten, and that is plenty. Per usual, charlie works his big brother magic as child's collages delight the eye. Copyright 2004 reed business information.
