Author Angela Johnson weaves a lyrical, flat-out fun tale that will make this book an easy favorite among early readers. Kids will readily connect with the safe places of Lottie's world -- her home, the park, her dad's lap -- and the wonder of those ordinary places. They will also identify with Lottie's enthusiasm, energy, and even her time in the quiet chair.

Beautifully drawn, illustrator Scott M. Fischer captures the ordinary -- Lottie peeking out from behind her bed -- and creates pictures with such light and whimsy that readers instantly connect with the busy little girl. The pictures are like jazz, full of moment and depth, and pair perfectly with Johnson's musical prose.

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.
