In the early 1900's, father brought home a pet parrot for his five daughters. This book describes the fun that the family had with the bird who could talk in both English and Spanish. On the first day, the five girls gathered around the parrot to decide what to name it. After several suggestions, the bird spoke up and said "My Name is Lola. I'm a bird." Hence the name of the book and the first funny story. More remarkable events follow.
"Lola" will be enjoyed both by kids and the adults who read it to them. The Aita family lived in Brooklyn, NY around 1920 and some of the family life in Brooklyn is revealed by author Jean Marano. Born in 1915, Jean is now 97 years old and has fond memories of growing up with her sisters and Lola.
