I am also always on the look-out for books that feature characters of color, especially when the topic of the book has nothing to do with the race of the character. The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats is often cited as a particular example of this. The more my children can see people who don't look like them doing exactly the same things they enjoy doing, the better.
Lola is adorable and I was very happy to learn today that she has a series of books including:
- Lola at the Library
- Lola Loves Stories
- Lola Reads to Leo
We'll be checking those out very soon!
