Lola Knows a Lot by Jenna McCarthy -- OPTIONAL

McCarthy, Jenna Lola Knows a Lot, illustrated by Sara Palacios. PICTURE BOOK. Balzer + Bray (HarperCollins), 2016. $17.99.

As Lola prepares for her first day of school, she lists all the things she knows, such as how to do a cartwheel, how to hula-hoop, and how to count in Spanish. But when her big sister points out that she still has a lot to learn, Lola panics and begins to think of what she doesn't yet know. Good thing she's about to start school, so she can fill in all the gaps in her knowledge!

While Lola Knows a Lot is cute and lively, it simply doesn't stand out in a sea of first-day-of-school books.
