Meet Lola. She is a 5-lb yorki who defied all odds to become one of the smallest certified therapy dogs in service. She travels to schools, elder care centers, and bookstores to help brighten the lives of those she visits.
My children love reading about Lola. The real life parallels between Lola’s experiences and those my children encounter are spot on. My kindergartner especially loved being able to snuggle with the Lola plush pet while listening to the books being read out loud.
Lola Goes to Work: A Nine-to-Five Therapy Dog
Children will identify with the feisty Lola as she struggles going to school, passing tests, and finally achieving her Big Dog dream. If Lola can make it in a world of Great Danes and Labradors, so can anybody who’s feeling like a runt.
Lola Goes to School
The lovable therapy dog from Lola Goes to Work has her first day at Doggy Daycare. Like anyone new to preschool or kindergarten, she’s a little bit nervous, a little bit scared, and very excited. Children will identify with Lola as she faces first-day-of-school jitters.
Lola Goes to the Doctor
Children will identify with Lola as she nervously waits to be called into the doctor’s office. Lola feels a little bit brave when the doctor looks into her ears, a little braver when he examines her teeth, and bravest of all when she gets a shot.
