Summary
Lola knows a lot about being a good friend. She knows friends have lots of things in common but not everything (that would be boring). Friends are always ready to share--even something gross! Sometimes friends make mistakes but they always forgive each other. The problem is Lola's family just moved, and the only person she knows in her new neighborhood is her big sister Charlotte. And Charlotte doesn't exactly count. Can Lola prove she knows how to make friends, too?

Review
  • PreS-Gr 2—With friendship sometimes being a tricky thing for children, this story about a girl moving into a new neighborhood offers suggestions and examples of how to be a friend. Told in first person, Lola passes along her experiences with friends ("I love lizards and licorice, and my favorite color is green." "No way! I love lizards and licorice too! But my favorite color is purple."), even some of the negative kind ("Sometimes friends make mistakes, but they always forgive each other."). McCarthy provides Lola with realistic situations that children will relate to and Palacios's fun artwork is expressive, showing a wide range of emotions. This is a good selection for a child who is moving and uncertain about making new friends, though it primarily shows friendship among girls. VERDICT Whether read alone or shared aloud, this is a solid selection that is likely to resonate with the targeted audience.—Liz Frame, San Antonio Christian Elementary School --Liz Frame (Reviewed 12/01/2017) (School Library Journal, vol 63, issue 12, p88)
  • Lola is one confident kid, and she happens to have some great advice about making friends.<br><br>She does have 347, after all. Trouble is, she's just moved, and none of those friends are in her new town. But that changes by the end of the first day after her mother helps her remember that she could write a book about making friends. McCarthy's advice is not sugarcoated, and she doesn't portray Lola as always having an easy time being a friend—it takes patience to listen to a buddy drone on about the many names she is considering for a future pet turtle. Lola seems to know just how to respond in lots of situations; when a new friend tells her she's the "seventh nicest person" she knows, Lola responds with "Thanks?" and points out to readers that friends "tell each other the truth. This isn't always a good thing." And Lola doesn't fall for fake, either. "If you give me your ice cream, I'll invite you to my birthday party" meets with a firm "I think I'd rather have the ice cream." Palacios gives Lola lots of exuberant personality; even her blonde pigtails can't be contained—they stick out from the sides of her head. Lola and her family are white; her new neighborhood is diverse. <br><br>Lola's pointers should stand young friends-to-be in good stead. <i>(Picture book. 4-8)</i>(Kirkus Reviews, October 1, 2017)
