eBook Review: Lola in the Library
After our disappointing experience with another library-themed eBook, I thought we should find a GOOD one to share. I found an old favourite: Anna McQuinn and Rosalind Beardshaw’s Lola at the Library. We used TumbleBooks on our Galaxy Tab again.
I used to use a paper copy of this book with K-3 class visits at the library, and I was interested to see how it would be presented in eBook form. I was pleasantly surprised with the pacing the narrator used- it was slow and articulate, performed in a style that emulates a child’s speaking patterns. Perfect for the text.
When presenting this book with school children I always skipped the page about Lola and her mom going for cappuccino after visiting the library. It seemed out of place then, but now that I have Little J I totally get it. We go out for coffee before or after visiting the library, and I give him some foam off my mocha. Art imitating life!
