    1 thought on “Absolutely One Thing (Charlie and Lola)”

    1. Absolutely one thing I love is reading to my children. Absolutely another thing I love is reading Charlie and Lola. I cannot help using my fine-tuned British accent, which my kids pretend to hate but probably actually like. I clocked several hours of watching Charlie and Lola when then kids were younger and I think I do a spot on impression. This new book has all of the elements that have made the others shine: funky artwork, vibrant scenes, a fun yet relatable storyline, and of course, Charlie [...]

    2. Thank goodness for Charlie and Lola. They give me much the same warm amusement that Elephant and Piggie do, and now that series is done, I'm looking for others. Charlie is so patient, Lola so imaginative. This is much more than simple counting, and probably better for kids Charlie's age than Lola's. No familiarity w/ the TV show necessary but maybe I should see if I can find a video of it.What are your recommendations?

    3. This is a really great book to introduce counting and simple sums. It's written in a lovely style with Charlie being the patient older brother and showing Lola what to count.

    4. All about numbers! Charlie is very patient with his younger sister Lola as she tries to figure out what comes after 11 and how to count the leaves on a tree. She also figures out how many minutes it will take her to get ready and how long half-a-second really is!

    5. Big brother Charlie guides little sister Lola through rules numbers as they trek to the store, where their mom has promised them one toy each. Younger readers will enjoy correcting Lola’s miscountings, while older readers can join Charlie in calculating simple math problems that arise during the journey — such as, how many stickers does Lola have left after sticking five on the pavement, three on a tree, two on her shoes, one on her brother and one on the dog? (Answer: zero.) Though the page [...]

    6. Absolutely One Thing by Lauren Child tells the story of Charlie and his little sister Lola has the count everything around them in their environment on their way to the store. The mixed media illusrations make creative use of cartoon drawings, textures, and creative layout of the words and numbers from the story. This numbers book would be excellent for middle grade students as it makes great use of adding, subtracting, multiplication, and division in a way that shows it’s importance to the re [...]

    7. “That was a good book. It had math in it.” The tone of awe from the reader was clear. The goodness in this book lies in the fact that Charlie has a goofy, but always entertaining, younger sister named Lola who never fails to bring about giggles. In Charlie and Lola’s latest story (it’s a delightful series), the family is going to a store where they get to pick out ONE thing. Young readers (and parents) will be delighted by Lola’s “number sense” and her ability to negotiate. Recomme [...]

    8. This is a book about numbers, and counting. I liked it for the most part, but there was some parts where the text was not clear - it was trying to be "cute" and "fun", but that made it hard to follow logically.

    9. The kids love Charlie and Lola, so they had fun with this humorous math-centered book. Nothing special, just typical Lauren Child-ish humor and math.

    10. Good for when you can only read absolutely one more book before bed. Lots of fun with numbers and negotiations and the usual silly antics of Charlie and Lola.

    11. Another Charlie and Lola book for our list :) I like that this one has a bit more of a focus on Charlie and I completely had that kind of dawdling walk today with Miss 2!

    12. A little like Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith's Math Curse, except the math isn't as solid. Charlie and Lola fine out what being ready in 10 minutes really means and what a half second is.

    13. This is a book about math for young children. Charlie and Lola (brother and sister) go on a journey to the store and along the way they do counting, subtraction, addition, and multiplication.

    14. Charlie and Lola have been one of my favourite children's books series for a long time. This book is not exception and has the added bonus of including numbers which is great for kids that are learning to count or just love to count. Recommend for kids 3+

    15. I loved the Charlie and Lola books since I brought the very first one for my eldest son (who is now 18!) and I am delighted that Lauren Child is still writing new stories and even more delighted that she has still retrained the deft touch and wonderful humour of that first book. Although my own children have long moved on to chapter books, my eight year old daughter does still love Charlie and Lola (and still enjoys picture books) and my nieces and nephews are all fans too, so I could not resist [...]

    16. I am a big fan of Lauren Child, as are both of my kids. I love the colors and patterns she chooses and the way that she manages texture and flat picture plane at once. I love the energy in the lines of her drawings. What I love best in her picture books, though, is that the bright playfulness of the illustrations is always joined with text that perfectly matches that energy. The humor of it, and the rhythm, and the timing--always just the thing. The text of this one, like the other Charlie and L [...]

    17. First sentence: I have this little sister, Lola. She is small and very funny. Sometimes for a treat, Mom says, "We are going to the store and you may choose one thing." "One thing EACH," I say, "or ONE thing between two?" And Mom says, "Each."Premise/plot: Charlie and Lola are brother and sister. Charlie takes great care of his little sister. And he's surprisingly very patient, very kind, very tender with her. Lola is without a doubt a handful! In this new book, Charlie and Lola are going to the [...]

    18. When their mum takes Charlie and Lola to the shops and tells them they can get one thing for a treat, Charlie asks "one thing each?" This simple question leads to a great story about numbers and sharing.This bright and engaging book is filled with numbers; from counting birds and stickers to telling the time, numbers are everywhere in this book.With Maths and numbers being something we deal with on a daily basis, Lauren Child has done a great job in incorporating numbers into this lovely little [...]

    19. I've just read this with my five-year-old daughter. She said, "that was a funny story." Indeed that's what you'd expect from a Charlie and Lola book right from the start with the familiar opening refrain of "I have this sister Lola. She is small and very funny."Lola spends the book getting distracted by the world around her as she counts the dots on her dress or the leaves on the tree whilst Charlie is helping her learn her numbers. This is whilst they go to the shop with their mum so they can c [...]

    20. Charlie and Lola are back in this clever story filled with fun, humor and simple math concepts. Mom is going to the store and she tells Charlie and Lola that they may get one thing. “One thing EACH” Charlie asks, “or ONE thing between TWO?” Thus begins Child’s delightful number filled-story. Child fits addition, subtraction, multiplication or division into every page in the form of Charlie trying to figure out how long it took him to get ready to Lola asking Charlie to help her figure [...]

    21. Count on Absolutely One Thing for a singularly funny look at simple math as encountered by Charlie and Lola. Sometimes, as a treat, Mom takes Charlie and Lola to the store and says they may choose one thing. "One thing to share?" Lola asks. No, it's one thing each, explains Charlie, or two actual things between two. Lola is nine minutes late getting ready, and on the way, there are ladybugs and birds to count and maybe a squillion leaves on a tree. At the store, Lola says she'll choose three thi [...]

    22. Charlie and Lola are allowed to choose one thing each when they go shopping with their mother. The problem is that Lola can't count very well, but still wants to figure out a way to get more than one thing. Along the way, Charlie counts with her and answers all her endless questions like what comes after twelve and how spots are on a ladybug. She counts the ducks and other birds until she loses track and then wants to know how many leaves are on the tree. She tests her concept of hundreds, thous [...]

    23. I quite like Lauren Child, and I quite like Charlie and Lola. I actually quite liked this book - I liked the inclusion of the math skills into Charlie's narration, and it flowed along very easily. It's just the sort of thing a boy of Charlie's age would be thinking about. I loved Lola's attempts at negotiation, and how easily mum shut them down, and Charlie doing the same thing (because kids are nothing if not observant!). The pictures did tend to be a bit busy, though - as much as I liked the i [...]

    24. This may be my favorite and my best Charlie and Lola book. It had the perfect balance of Charlie amd and Lola cleverness and great mathematical learning. I am convinced that British people are innately clever (or at least their authors are) because they use such fun, interesting, and creative words and phrases. It's why I love Lauren Child's work so much.And if you must know, I always read Charlie and Lola books out loud in a British accent when I read them.

    25. Great book for a lapsit. I am not sure it would translate well to storytime at the library although may for a young school age group( K-2) Delightful story of a brother and his younger sister on their way to the store and all the distractions along the way the negotiations of Charlies' younger sister Lola. Math is woven in throughout the story quite cleverly. I like these characters and reminds me of the Elephant and Piggy series for older readers.

    26. While I enjoyed the idea of this book, I found each page to be very busy and hard to focus upon. On each page there was not only text that went all around and up and down, but the illustrations became increasingly busy. I feel as though this book may have been better, and the story line more easily focused upon, if there was not so much going on throughout the entire book. Unfortunately, the only thing I found this book to be was very overwhelming.+Book-List

    27. A very well done counting/numbers concept book with a nice plot. On one or two pages it can be a bit difficult to navigate where the text is going (making the reading of said page difficult as well). Parents will appreciate the humor and I think kids will respond well to the question/answer format.

    28. A thoroughly real sibling relationship and age-appropriate curiosity, confusion, and compulsivity about numbers, environment, and self-absorption. There is much about this to enjoy and many opportunities for both actual and imaginative word play and number play. Very worthy of multiple readings.

    29. Does Charlie just like numbers, or is he maybe a little OCD? In any case, this book is fun, and with my ADHD, I like the distractibility he encounters, and the misjudgment as to whether something will take him just a second, or 120 seconds.Colorful and full of numbers. NOT your typical counting numbers book, but playful for the more advanced counter who wants to think about numbers.
