Where is it?
Spunky Lola embarks on a new adventure--the first day of school!

Lola and her family prepare for the first day of school the night before, then get up early, take pictures, and head to class. Lola puts her things in her cubby, chooses her activities, reads, plays, and has a snack. Before she knows it, it's time to sing the good-bye song and rush into Mommy's arms for a warm reunion. A comforting, cheerful read that demystifies the school day for preschoolers and kindergarteners.

Booklist Review
Lola may be starting school for the first time, but after visiting the building and meeting her teacher, she knows what to expect. The night before, she packs her new pencils and water bottle into her bag. She lays out her clothes for tomorrow. In the morning, she and Mommy both go into her classroom. Mommy sits with other parents for a bit before leaving. Meanwhile, Lola reads, plays superheroes, and enjoys a snack. She and three classmates build a castle with blocks, then sit for circle time. Mommy returns, gives Lola a hug, and takes her home for a nap. Illustrated with colorful, lively artwork, this picture book offers a supportive starting place for conversations about preschool or kindergarten. The simplicity of the story and the universality of the experience combine to make this a reassuring choice for children entering a structured school environment for the first time, whether or not they know Lola from other books in the series, such as Lola Plants a Garden (2014) and Lola Gets a Cat (2017).--Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2019 Booklist
