I love this book.
If you have ever seen the cartoon of these characters on Disney Channel, then you cannot help but play their words in your mind as you read these books. This is not a bad thing, except for me, I continue to "hear" Lola's voice even after I finish reading! This particular story hits home because my own daughter did the same thing. She had heard that glasses were bad, so she didn't want to have them. Then a friend got a pair, and she could not wait to go to the eye doctor to have her vision checked, because she was absolutely certain she needed glasses. When she did not need them, she started to ask if she could have a pair of frames without lenses even! Anyway, Charlie is the best older brother in the world, and he always helps Lola understand her world. It is a great book that is one of many great books. Definitely good for parents of fanciful children with big imaginations! Like I said, check out the cartoons on Disney channel and then read the books. If you like one, you will enjoy the other!
