    1 thought on “Lola Plants a Garden

    1. The illustrations in this book are just PRECIOUS! I love them! The story is sweet, too- I like the fact that Lola was so interested in something she read that she wanted to act on it, and it's fun to see stories where families work together on something (in this case, planting a garden!)

    2. I enjoyed reading Lola Plants a Garden because it taught me that, though there are thousands of books and many different genres, there is one genre specifically tailored to my interest. I liked that fact that Lola’s love of garden poems caused her to find out how to plant a garden and then she read another book to instruct her on the process. I thought that this would teach children to find books about topics that they love so that they can become an avid reader. Lola Plants a Garden by Anna [...]

    3. I loved this book. I liked that reading with her Mom is one of the things which made Lola love flowers and want to have a flower garden. I liked that Lola researches (looks through) books about flowers to find out which she likes and that she used her library to find those books. I liked that once she planted her garden, she spends time doing crafts to make decorations to help pass the time until her garden starts to sprout. And I liked that, once her flowers start to bloom, she has her friends [...]

    4. I read this at a storytime to a group of 18 children ages 4 -5. They enjoyed it and we talked about going to the library to find books about the project you are getting ready to do, planting gardens, making scrapbooks and cooking from the garden. The illustrations are soft and colorful and Lola is adorable. I like that the author included a classic nursery rhyme and an original poem based on the classic rhyme because it is National Poetry Month, and I think its important to teach children about [...]

    5. This is the story of Lola, a little girl who loves the rhyme, "Mary, Mary, quite contrary," and is so fascinated by the idea of a flower garden that her mother agrees to help her plant one next to the vegetables. Lola and her mother plant the seeds, and then Lola must wait patiently for her flowers to emerge. While she waits, she makes a string of shiny bells and shells to hand among the flowers. When the flowers bloom, she invites her friends over to enjoy them. A sweet book, ideal for children [...]

    6. In Lola's most recent adventure, she becomes enchanted by the darling poem "Mary Mary Quite Contrary" and wants to plant her own flowers. I love the way her book of poems inspires a gardening adventure and a summer of fun. Lola gathers books from the library, chooses flower types with her mom and goes to the garden store to buy seeds. She plants her seeds, waits and cares for them and passes the time with the utmost creativity. Simple and straightforward but filled with life and color, this is a [...]

    7. Lola loves to read, especially her book of garden poems—and she decides she wants a garden of her own. Her mother takes Lola to the library and helps her select which flowers she wants to plant—and then off they go to buy seeds. After the flowers have grown, Lola invites her friends to a picnic to show off her garden.Original post on mackinbooksinbloom/2015/04

    8. Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary inspires Lola to grow her own garden with help from Mom and Dad. It's important to read the front cover with the nursery rhyme. The back cover has a Lola poem to end the book as well. Very sweet story.Reviewed from a library copy.2016 storytime theme: PreK Planters/Gardens

    9. Lola stories are always so much fun to read and this title is no exception. This tale of "Lola Plants a Garden" explores Lola's desire to plant a garden, and with the help of her parents plants a flower garden. The illustrations are bright and cheerful and perfect for storytimes with toddlers and preschoolers.

    10. I love Lola and this time she wants to plant a garden and we see her and her mother planning, planting, and caring for the garden. And of course Lola first went to the library to find books on gardening before beginning her project.

    11. Inspired by the nursery rhyme Mary Mary Quite Contrary, Lola plants a garden. She does her research and helps tend the garden and while she's waiting decorates and plans for a celebration with friends when the garden blooms.Acrylic illustrations. Great read aloud for PreK-2.

    12. I've liked this character for a while, and this book ties gardening with the "Mary, Mary Quite Contrary" nursery rhyme. My children could relate to wanting to plant flowers, buying seeds at the garden store, and making a flower book. We're excited to garden!

    13. Absolutely loved this simple story with charming illustrations. Lola and her mother plant a flower garden and make their own book because Lola loves the nursery rhyme " Mary, Mary". This book is great for teaching sequencing and inspiring creativity. You'll love the finished garden.

    14. Little Lola is excited about the book of garden poems to the point of wanting to plant her own. With the help of her mommy, Lola learns about the beauty of nature and sharing that beauty with friends and those you love.

    15. The Lola books are fantastic! I recommend them very highly. As a bonus, they feature families of all colors. Love love Lola & Leo!

    16. Lola, as a character, is wonderful! This book is wonderful because of the qualities given to Lola as a character. Excellent!

    17. A celebration of imaginative play and a subtle message about patience reaping big rewards--a difficult concept for the youngest ones, but well handled here.

    18. The illustrations are adorable. The story is cute. I love the use of the nursery rhyme. Everything is awesome in this book!

    19. This simple introduction to a little girl and her garden would be great in a spring or garden themed storytime.

    20. I love the Lola series. Rosalind Beardshaw’s bold illustrations are superb. Even though this is a monolingual Spanish book, it would have been a good idea to add the original English version of the Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary nursery rhyme to the Spanish translation. The Spanish version of the poem is fine, but all the Spanish readers in the United States are learning English nursery rhymes, and many readers in other countries learn them too. I will be buying this book for the library and readi [...]

    21. Lola, inspired by garden poems like "Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?", plants her own garden and celebrates her bountiful harvest with her friends. Very cute, though we are partial to the stories involving Leo and the library.

    22. Another wonderful installment in this precious series. Filled with marvelous familiar and friend relationships (and encouraging the live of books and libraries!!!), this one is a keeper. I LOVE LOLA!!!

    23. Lola decides that she wants to plant a flower garden, just like "Mary, Mary Quite Contrary." She is a lucky girl to have parents who are willing to indulge her endeavors.
