What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Lola is proud of her amazing wool. After all, everyone on the farm tells her how beautiful she looks. She spends hours brushing her wool to keep it shiny and silky. Until one day when the weather gets hot, and all the sheep have to get haircuts—including Lola! She’s so upset without her wool that she runs away and hides by herself. And when her wool finally grows back, it’s tangled, messy…HORRIBLE! But hiding in Lola’s wool is a wonderful surprise, one that will help her realize that she doesn’t have to be pretty or perfect in order to be a friend…or to be extraordinary!

At first reading, I didn’t think this book was really anything special—just a pretty cute little story with pretty cute little illustrations. However, as I’ve thought more about it, I can see how this book could be very useful in talking to school-aged kids about how they feel about themselves, what truly makes them happy, and how to deal with situations that cause a blow to their self confidence. I especially like the lesson that what we accomplish and how we relate to other people is more important than how we look.
