Charlie & Lola: One Thing by Lauren Child RRP$19.99
I’ve been in love with straight talking Lola since Ethan was little and am so happy that Nix loves these siblings just as much as his brother did.
Nixon turned 3 a couple of months ago and counting is his jam right now. He’s starting to recognise that numbers are everywhere and he wants to talk about them all the time.
And by that I mean, ALL THE TIME lol.
‘One Thing’ is classic Charlie and Lola. Charlie’s everlasting patience shepherds Lola through an excursion to the shops and they (and little readers) enjoy counting and discovering all kinds of numbers and sums simply everywhere along the way.
As a parent, the joy of both watching and reading about this loveable pair is that they are so relatable. A Charlie and Lola episode or book IS real life with under-5s! The magically inquisitive, stroppy, assertive and infinitely knowledgable Lola is somehow both of my kids simultaneously. Lauren Child does a genius job of weaving age-appropriate maths in with a tale, and characters, that will be loved by both adult readers and little listeners alike.
