I Am Too Absolutely Small for School (Charlie and Lola)
|Series:||Charlie & Lola|
Charlie's little sister Lola is nearly big enough to go to school - but Lola is not so sure. She thinks it probably would be useful to read and write and count, but she doesn't really have time for school - she's much too busy doing extremely important things at home. And, besides, Lola's invisible friend, Soren Lorensen, is slightly nervous about going to school on his own ...This classic tale of first-day-at-school worries addresses childrens' fears with warmth, humour and fun.
