Lola has lots of experience with making friends, so much so that she decides to write a book about it. When she moves to a new neighborhood, her friendship-making skills are put to the test. Lola does all the things that make a good friend and builds relationships with the people around her that make life more exciting and meaningful. After all, what’s life without a good friend?

With endearing characters the same age as the intended audience, this book is certainly relatable, but not just for kids. The messages in this book are important for everyone and apply to adults too! This book would be perfect for a character lesson on friendship and is entertaining and fun to read.
