LOTTIE PARIS AND THE BEST PLACE is a great resource for early readers. By bringing in Lottie's new friend, Carl, author Angela Johnson opens up the Lottie's world to a whole new group: boys! Readers will enjoy the engaging, rhythmic prose while exploring Lottie's imagination and her favorite place, the library.

Illustrator Scott M. Fischer captures the vibrancy of these preschoolers. His illustrations are full of life and add incredible depth to each page. The colors are rich and fun, just like Lottie and Carl. Lottie Paris and the Best Place is also good for prompting discussions about proper behavior in the library and how to treat borrowed books. After kids get excited by this fun romp with Lottie, parents may want to make library visits a regular part of their family's schedule -- not a bad thing in a world of ebooks.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
