Reviews
Fans of Lola at the Library will love getting to see Lola put her reading skills to good use: planning her new garden! After reading a book of garden poetry, Lola sets out to research what plants will grow best and how to prepare her plot. Then she and her mother plant the seeds, water, and wait to see what happens. . . . This sweet story celebrates the excitement of planting your first garden, as well as the power that comes from reading.
