Lola Dutch, When I Grow Up

Lola Dutch, When I Grow Up is finally available for Pre-Order!

As the second book in the series, this is an exciting extension of the first book, but with even more drive coming from Lola who simply can’t decide what she wants to be when she grows up! This is an urgent and intense search! No time for tea or toast, she tells Bear. She explores the options of performing on the grand stage, becoming an inventor, a botanist, as well as many more fun and exciting careers. But it’s all TOO MUCH! How can she decide? With the help of Bear, she comes to a satisfying conclusion, reminding us all of the importance of letting kids be kids, and encouraging them to be curious about everything!

When you pre-order Lola Dutch, When I Grow Up, you can submit your proof of purchase HERE so you can get your FREE PDF CURIOSITY KIT in your inbox the day of launch! The CURIOSITY KIT will be much like the FREE CREATIVITY KIT we released with the first book (which is now on sale HERE): 30+ pages of downloadable activities, games, crafts, lesson plans, recipes, coloring pages and parent creativity guides all supporting this over the top and enthusiastically creative Lola Dutch! Definitely worth it to pre-order as it’s super simple to submit! For any questions, please refer to the FAQ page on the pre-order page. We are also delighted that the USA, UK and AUSTRALIA are open to pre-ordering!

We are so excited to have the second book so close to publication! Kenneth and I will be on a small book tour in January as well! You can visit HERE to see events we currently have planned. We hope to see you there!

Lola Dutch Series: Curiosity

Lola Dutch Creativity Quote

Lola Dutch comes out in 20 days, but this character and story was conceived long ago! The Lola Dutch stories were born out of a deep, deep desire to share the incredible tools children receive when they grow and develop their curiosity! When a child is curious, and are allowed the space to think and ask questions and discover, they naturally turn to creativity and hands on learning...which turns into a passion for life...and develops into a confidence in their abilities to overcome anything ...which leads to problem solving, out-side-of-the-box thinking, compassionate and capable, brilliant adults!

Curiosity leads to creativity, and creativity leads to more curiosity!

It's an amazing cycle that children NEED in this modern world more than ever. Sometimes it's hard for me to let the messes happen at home, to be OK with the kids opening up the sewing box to try something new on their own...and while there needs to be boundaries of course, a child'd curiosity can easily die. And it usually dies with us having good intentions. Because, well, it's easier not to open up the flour bin and find out what happens when you mix flour and water together.

Lola Dutch dives right into this with passion and 20 days!!! And to support the curious and creative readers, we've created a CREATIVITY KIT that will be emailed to you when you pre-order the book and submit your receipt before Jan 29th at More on that in other posts...for now, you can order where ever books are sold!
