Lola And I

Lola and INarrated by blind Lola’s black Lab guide dog named Star, this picture book portrays the friendship between a girl and her dog. At first, Lola was afraid to go outside. But eventually, she and Star go out to explore Lola’s Italian environment. They shop for clothing, have cream croissants and lemonade in the park, go tobogganing in the mountains, and have their portrait painted at the beach.   The strong text, with sight-free sensory details, is enriched by warm, soft-focus illustrations. mjw
