Charlie introduces her to books about dinosaurs, and books about Romans, and he even takes her into a beautiful Chinese pop-up book, but nothing matches Beetles, Bugs and Butterflies. Or does it?
Today Lola wants to do everything all on her own. In the park, Charlie and his friend Marv persuade her that a seesaw won't 'see' or 'saw' with only one person.
