"Lola the sheep has the most extraordinary wool. It's soft and silky and is her pride and joy! But down on the farm, when the sun comes out, the wool comes off! Poor Lola is so upset by her haircut that she runs away to the far side of the farm where she sits all alone, waiting for it to grow back. And when it does, its no longer silky, it's completely wild! But with it comes a wonderful surprise... Thanks to a tiny chick, this self-obsessed sheep learns an important life lesson; that great friendships are more important than simply having great hair."--Provided by the publisher.

A sheep named Lola enjoys having beautiful wool. But one hot day, the sheep must get a haircut... and suddenly, Lola doesn't feel beautiful without her beautiful wool anymore. This is a great book to encourage children to accept who they are, just as they are. When Lola embraces her new wild, unruly wool, something unexpected happens - and it never would have happened if she had perfect wool!

Lola loves her soft, silky wool but when she gets sheared it turns curly and messy. She hates her new hair, until she realizes it's a perfect nesting place for a beautiful bird. Learning to love yourself regardless of your appearance is a sweet message for kids.
