Thinking about what she might want to be when she grows up, Lola and her friends spare no effort in exploring the many varied options that strike her fancy. As Lola works and grows, she decides what she really wants is to be a kid, and learn about everything- and there's always tomorrow, when she may decide to try something else entirely. Filled with as much curiosity and charm as the first book!— Kelly
Lola Dutch is always bursting with grand plans--so of course she has many ideas for what she wants to be when she grows up!
She could be a magnificent performer . . .
or a daring inventor . . .
or a brilliant botanist . . .
there are exciting ideas all around! But Lola is too excited--she wants to try EVERYTHING. How will she ever decide what she is destined to become?
The curious and creative Lola Dutch is inspired to imagine every way to explore the wonder of her world. And she doesn't have to wait until she grows up!
Inspired by their own four gorgeously creative children, Sarah Jane and Kenneth Wright are thrilled to continue this fun series about the unstoppable Lola Dutch, a larger-than-life character perfect for fans of Olivia and Fancy Nancy.
Kenneth and Sarah Jane Wright live in Utah with their four uniquely intense children. In 2008 Sarah Jane opened a simple online shop that has since grown into a worldwide business with art prints, fabrics, wallpaper, puppets, and illustrated children's books. Kenneth is a full-time educator and history teacher. Together Kenneth and Sarah Jane share a ridiculous number of hobbies. On any given day at the Wright house you'll see treehouse building, pastry making, spontaneous musicals, and kids tucked into cozy nooks, reading stacks of books on EVERYTHING. They are thrilled to be writing picture books about Lola Dutch together.
