In McQuinn’s newest "Lola Reads" book, Lola is excited for her grandmother, her Nana-Bibi, to arrive. Her Nana-Bibi lives so far away she has to take a plane to visit, so when they are able to spend time together, Lola is full of joy. Once Nana-Bibi arrives, the family doesn’t waste a second; right away, they begin the fun activities they planned. Together they go out to eat, go shopping, make delicious mandazi doughnuts, do each other’s hair, dance, and plant seeds in the garden. Lola loves her Nana-Bibi and they get together. Once again, McQuinn writes a beautiful story that any family can enjoy. Alongside Beardshaw’s warm illustrations, this edition celebrates multigenerational relationships and portrays the love between a grandmother, mother, and granddaughter. McQuinn also promotes diverse family structures by depicting how some families live far apart but maintain special bonds. This book is perfect for younger readers.
