Reading is so important for kids so this is why the next cool gift in my Holiday Gift Guide is a book series about Lola the Therapy Dog written by Marcia Goldman who is her owner. Our new puppy Shellie the Sheltie decided to check out the books too with real pictures of Lola.
These books are adorable talking about visits to the doctor, going to work, first day of school and being a tattletale. Lola is a little Yorkie. I had a little Yorkie named Rocky when I was growing up. They are great little dogs but not usually therapy dogs but Lola overcame the odds and became one.
Lauren read to Shellie about going to the doctor. Even Shellie was really interested in the cute pictures of Lola. Lauren loved reading the books and thought Lola was adorable.
This is a such a wonderful book series because it teaches kids how to overcome their fears. Children will identify with the feisty Lola as she struggles going to school, passing tests, and finally achieving her Big Dog dream. If Lola can make it in a world of Great Danes and Labradors, so can anybody who's feeling like a runt. The book shows children how through hard work and determination, anyone can achieve their goals.
You can purchase the books on Amazon. What a great gift for your budding reader. They are easy to read for young children and would be perfect for Kindergartners to Second Graders.
Disclosure: I was provided with the set of four Lola books and small stuffed animal. No other compensation was received and as always all opinions are my own.
