Review of I AM TOO ABSOLUTELY SMALL FOR SCHOOL by Lauren Child

by Becky Laney

Child, Lauren. 2004. I AM TOO ABSOLUTELY SMALL FOR SCHOOL. Cambridge, MA.: Candlewick. ISBN: 0763624039.

Lauren Child's vivacious characters Lola and Charlie return for their third adventure together in I AM TOO ABSOLUTELY SMALL FOR SCHOOL. Lola is convinced that she is too small to start going to school. Besides that, she is "too extremely busy doing important things at home" to bother with school. Yet through Charlie's persuasive encouragement, Lola soon embraces the concept of starting school where she'll learn to read, write, count, and have the opportunity to make new friends. For each excuse Lola has to not go to school, Charlie is there to give her a good reason why school is important--and most importantly not that scary.
I AM TOO ABSOLUTELY SMALL FOR SCHOOL is a humorous and reassuring look at the common fears many children have about starting school. Child's text and illustrations are unique and charming. Lola definitely has a voice all her own!
