***(update): I've finished this book now, and read it with my 10 year old daughter. Far exceeded my expectations. Not only is this a great gift/tool for parenting a daughter, but it is a gift of healing and teaching for myself! ***
So, why should you trust my review of "Letters to Lola"??
Because this is a book of life lessons and anecdotes from someone who has lived them. From someone who has gone through multiple transformations and wants to advise her young daughter - not push her ideals on her - but write loving notes on tough issues so that her daughter knows that she can come to her, she can make her own messes - but most of all - that she is loved.
And Erin Brown didn't just want to pass these letters to her daughter.
She intended for ALL of us to see them. Not to learn our lessons through her. But to gain insight into difficulties of life - some shared experiences, some not, some lessons not quite learned yet. She doesn't refrain from touching on the tough subjects just because her letters are addressed to her young daughter. Instead, she writes about the tough subjects in a way that makes you feel she is wrapping you in a hug. She understands. She gets it. She sees you.
I am in my mid twenties and have no children. But I got so much out of this book. It introduced me to how to approach some difficult subjects. To not avoid the tough things...to talk about all the things.
This should be purchased as a gift for your daughter, a gift for your mother, a gift for your friend, sister, cousin. Maybe even a gift to a single parent of a young daughter, or a loved one going through a rough patch.
But, most importantly, it should be a gift to yourself.
