Lola often goes over to her cousin’s house to play, but she has never spent the night before. She packs everything she might need and walks over with her father. Throughout the evening, the girls have fun doing various activities, some of them including Lola’s two aunts. The next morning, after a fun breakfast, he dad comes and picks her up.
Anna McQuinn’s Lola Sleeps Over would be an appropriate book to read with a young child who finds themselves in a position where they need to sleep over at someone’s house. Knowing what types of things to expect can help calm a child’s anxiety. Even more than that, I love the casual representation in this book, with both Black and LGBTQ+ representation. Kids need more inclusion in everyday books.
