A sweet, funny lesson in economics as only Lola can teach it

Lola has lots of pocket money and is very excited to buy a new toy in the gift shop on a trip to the zoo. But she spends a little here and there, and before she knows it, she doesn't have enough left for her toy. Big brother Charlie shares his money, but then isn't able to get the book he wanted. With her typical exuberance, when Lola finds this out, she begins saving everything: a tangerine from lunch, bread for the ducks at the pond, and most importantly, her pocket change. Finally, she is able to help out her big brother when he needs a few extra coins.

With a focus on frugality, the latest in the award-winning series is a terrific helper for those just learning about money.

Praise for Charlie and Lola But I've Used All My Pocket Change
"That quirky blend of art and photography that readers love." -School Library Journal
Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
The "Charlie and Lola" series returns with Charlie and his younger sister going to the zoo. As the siblings get their spending money ready, Lola shares her plan to buy a bath toy and Charlie wants to buy a book about animals. Readers also learn that Lola does not save things for later when she begins to eat a part of her lunch; Charlie reminds his sister about her previous experiences. While they are at the zoo, Lola buys a balloon and pink milk. She uses up the film in her camera and runs out of bread to feed the duck. Charlie helps her out by sharing his camera and bread for the ducks. When they get to the zoo gift shop, Lola finds out that she does not have enough money for the bath toy. Charlie gives his money to her so that she can purchase the toy; however, Lola finds out that Charlie did not have enough money to buy his book. The following day, Lola turns over a new leaf by working on saving things. When the brother and sister go to the bookstore, Lola ends up saving the day for Charlie. The illustrations are collages using different prints, photographs, and drawings. Children who are familiar with the Charlie and Lola stories will probably enjoy this adventure too. Check out the web site for different activities. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3—Charlie and Lola anticipate a trip to the zoo, planning to make purchases from the gift shop. Lola wants a seal toy and Charlie would like a book about animals. But Charlie is a saver, and his sister is not. At the zoo, Lola buys a balloon and "pink milk," then borrows money from Charlie to pay for her toy. On the ride home, she learns that he sacrificed to help her out. Overnight, Lola is a changed person. She starts saving and conserving until she has more than enough pocket money to enable Charlie to buy another book. The illustrations are that quirky blend of art and photography that readers love. Nice enough, but additional.—Cass Mabbot, Seattle Public Library, WA
