4 Bittersweet Stars
I really liked this story. It was sad but it had a positive outcome. My boys liked it a lot too. In fact, I had to read it several times before bed. Definitely a keeper!

This is one book that we will be buying when it comes out.

Review for Children’s Book: Lola Goes to Work

5 stars for Lola!


I don’t usually review Children’s Books but I’ve decided that I really need to start downloading more for my kids.

This is an absolutely adorable book. My kids LOVED this one!

Lola is a Yorkshire Terrier that trains to be a therapy dog. It’s her big dream and it comes true. The pictures in this book are SO stinkin’ cute. I swear, Lola looks as though she is smiling in every picture.

Bravo, Ms. Goldman! This book is a hit at our house. Such a sweet story about a little dog that has a big heart to help others.
