Lola Koala Travel Adventures book series teachs early language skills

By 9/17/2020 11:45:00 AM ,

In this first book, Lola Koala’s Travel Adventures: Who, What, Where and Yes/No Questions, Lola takes little readers (ages 2-6) along on her travels, asks questions (interactive with a lift-the-flap for the answers), and shares a clue on each page to her final destination.


Lola empowers kids and their parents by teaching foundational language skills and travel skills that help children practice answering Who, What, Where and Yes/No questions all while learning about cool places around the world.

To help families learn more about Lola and the books Author Dr. Tinita Kearney (Dr. T), a speech pathologist, I'm sharing this Q&A.


What inspired your story?


Dr. Kearney: School year after school year, I am met with a caseload of unique, eager-to-learn elementary-school-aged students with not-so-unique speech and language issues. And while a percentage of these students have difficulties that require intensive therapy (plus the dedicated involvement of the family and school team), a good portion requires much less involvement from me.

It's this group that I aim to help with my books --by empowering their families to build their language skills at home with consistent, fun practice and resources!

What was your greatest challenge in writing this book?


Dr. Kearney: Rhyming! It was so much harder than I anticipated --coming up with rhyming words that naturally fit within the story was a huge challenge in and of itself.

What is your education/career background?


Dr. Kearney: I've had a desire to work with young children since high school and have done that for every job I've had since that time. I am now a pediatric speech-language pathologist and I take great joy in helping little ones improve their speech and language skills. Both in my private practice and in the public school system that I work with.

It is this love of children, and my vested interest in their progress, that drove me to create the Lola Koala's Travel Adventuresbook series.
