The Sandcastle That Lola Built by Megan Maynor - ADVISABLE

The Sandcastle That Lola Built  by Megan Maynor, illustrated by Kate Berube. PICTURE BOOK. Alfred A. Knopf, 2018. $18. 9781524716158



A variation on the house that Jack built, Lola is building a sandcastle when other kids on the beach interrupt her progress. Instead of getting upset or resolutely starting over, Lola invites them, each in turn, to join her on the project. When a wave washes the castle away, and Lola’s optimism with it, her new friends rally around her and help her start again.

Enjoying a fun day at the beach, meeting new friends, building an imaginative sand structure, finding a new version of a familiar tale – what is there not to like?
