Jason’s dad has a big pool but Gage kept wanting to go in the little pool, aka the hot tub, so I let him sit on the top step when nothing else would do. I brought a few books to Michigan, Lola Goes to Work, is his new favorite, so it was awarded hot tub status. Kathy wrote a great review of this one and then sent it on to Gage. I wasn’t sure he’d like it since he doesn’t have any favorite books with photos, but from our first reading, Lola has been a hit. He likes to finish reading each page for you, but I should mention that Gage’s ‘Lola’ sounds suspiciously like ‘Lellow’, but no matter, it only makes her cuter.
Lola is a five-pound Yorkshire Terrier who wanted a big job so she worked very hard to become a therapy dog. I wish I had taken a picture of the page I stress to Gage, “I learned to sit and stay, to lie down and wait patiently.” Lola eventually passes her test and becomes a therapy for the elderly and classrooms.
This is a sweet book that all ages can enjoy. It was written and photographed by Lola’s mom, Marcia Goldman. It’s 32 pages and even has a page at the end for teachers so they can better use the book in the classroom. Visit Lola’s website for some cute photos.

A friend we found at Versailles (you’ll probably have to click on it to see). A few days later Jason and our friends would be dining on his family and friends. I don’t understand how that is possible after meeting the little guy.
