A sweet, funny lesson in economics as only Lola can teach it
Lola has lots of pocket money and is very excited to buy a new toy in the gift shop on a trip to the zoo. But she spends a little here and there, and before she knows it, she doesn't have enough left for her toy. Big brother Charlie shares his money, but then isn't able to get the book he wanted. With her typical exuberance, when Lola finds this out, she begins saving everything: a tangerine from lunch, bread for the ducks at the pond, and most importantly, her pocket change. Finally, she is able to help out her big brother when he needs a few extra coins.
With a focus on frugality, the latest in the award-winning series is a terrific helper for those just learning about money.
