Lottie Paris Lives Here Reviews

    With the exception of the too-pink-for-me cover, this is a practically perfect picture book for young girls. It's always a pleasure to see a contemporary and fun story with a character of color that is NOT an issue book. Lottie Paris Lives Here is a day-in-the-life story of an average little girl with just a little bit of curiosity and mischievousness. Lottie's fun personality shines in ways that I hope will connect with many young readers.The illustrations are lively and vary in perspective in such a way that makes the story really come alive. Finally, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Lottie's hair. It's Fabulous!

    Hi everyone, as the Illustrator of Lottie Paris, I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed working on this book. Angela's words drew me into all that is Lottie, and I couldn't wait to create a visual world for her!It is all traditional art, created with gouache, applied with rollers, stencils, sponges, brushes, and I even used a bit of sandpaper here and there! It is a very tactile feeling book, and my most inventive to date for sure!Thanks for an amazing character Angela!

    I really love the illustrations; they really make Lottie come alive! She is a fun, creative, imaginative, playful child. I also like the fact that they never show Papa Pete's face so the story really focuses in on the child's eye view of the world. I love the story for the pictures but prefer to use the pictures and make up my own text. The provided text just doesn't always quite work for me. Also, we do not use time-outs, or any form of punishment, in our house. We let our children learn through life experiences so I was disappointed to see Lottie put in a "quite chair". But then, it is good for our children to learn about families that do things differently than our own. I do particularly enjoy the cultural feel that you get from the illustrations. You get the sense that Lottie lives in a single-parent African-American home with her father and that they have a happy, joy-filled life together. There is also quite a lot of family-love (among Papa Pete, Lottie, and her dog) evident throughout the illustrations. Overall, a wonderful book!

    Lottie Paris is a busy young lady today. She and Papa Pete have to visit the park, Lottie has to build a castle in her room, host a tea party, secretly steal Papa Pete's phone to play with, etc. You know, normal busy little girl stuff!Readers of other Angela Johnson stories will love Lottie Paris just as much. Through the picture on their wall, it's clear that Papa Pete is a single father or maybe even an adoptive dad. Readers never see his face, so the story takes on a very Muppet Babies feel (Nanny's legs), but he's got just as much personality . LOL Lottie ends up in the quiet chair a couple times, and she's busier than a bee, but she's also cute as a button and very loving. Little girls will love the cute and colorful pictures while adults will chuckle at the similarities to Lottie Paris and perhaps a similar girl in their life. The illustrations are bright and cheery, and Lottie Paris is a serious cutie.

    Her curiosity takes Lottie Paris all over the place, and she learns a lot when she takes a walk in the park near her house. This is a girl with plenty of spunk and determination, both of which get her into trouble sometimes, causing her to end up in the quiet chair. She certainly does know how to wear a hat, one complete with all sorts of baubles, feathers, and flowers. She also loves spending time with her Papa Pete, whether it's in the park on one of their walks or just sitting on their front porch. The Acryla gouache illustrations have been applied with brayer, linotype, stamping, airbrush, sandpaper and brush line and feature surprises such as Lottie Paris hiding in the shrubs in her front yard or the mischievous girl wearing boots that are too big for her. This delightful book provides a strong message of self-empowerment and the simple pleasures of life in a story about a girl who often doesn't follow the rules.

    The Caldecott/Newbery book is lovely, and politically correct, but this is the sort of book that harkens back to books like the immortal The Snowy Day. A little girl, doing little girl things, who happens to be African American, but has a universal appeal. I'm betting the award winner will sit on my shelf while the Lottie books circulate widely. (BTW, the second book Lottie Paris and the Best Place is even better!)

    This is a wonderfully fun story about Lottie Paris. It's very text light with no more than a few sentences per page. The story has a great rhythm from beginning to end"Ooookay, those aren't Lottie's feet. They're Papa Pete's. But Lottie is the short one wearing his boots, cause Lottie Paris is ready to walk."I love Fischer's very colorful illustrations. He's given Lottie a lot of personality. The text and illustrations are a perfect fit. Sometimes I forget along with her YA novels, Johnson also writes picture books which is a shame because they are very good. Lottie Paris:Lives Here is my favorite so far. I loved it.

    Lottie is a funky character, and seems to be in a lovely home with her Dad.I like all the texture, repeating patterns, and perspectives in the illustrations. My fav is when Lottie is looking in the mirror and you can see what she sees on page and the back of her head on the other.I'm not sure about the text though. I like the idea of looking for things in the pictures with younger kids (so say "Show me the socks...") But when Lottie is using the phone and then getting punished might be hard leap for little kids.

    This is a sweet story about a young girl and her family. The narrative is short and fun to read aloud and children can empathize with her experiences of getting into trouble after giving in to a temptation or speaking inappropriately to a caregiver. The illustrations are colorful and cartoonish and really complement the narrative nicely. The content was a bit young for our girls, but we enjoyed reading the story together anyway.

    I love Lottie Paris, as does my two year old who wants to read this book again and again! Lottie has a strong personality, is adventuresome, and is imaginative. I love the childlike nature of the book. The plot is simple in a good way; we see Lottie doing what she does everyday. Lottie wears her papa's shoes, goes to the park, pretends, and even is shown going to her "quiet chair." The illustrations are wonderful and my child and I are finding new details with every read.

    I've decided to read 29 children's book during Black History month 2016. This was book #6. Lottie Paris Lives Here by Angela Johnson and illustrated by Scott M. Fischer. Lottie Paris is a free-spirited, Afro wearing young lady that loves hats. Papa Pete is her main care giver and works hard to keep her in line. Lottie Paris has a vivid imagination that makes everyday spectacular. The illustrations are bright and festive.

    This is marked as the Kindle Edition on Goodreads, but I was able to read a F&G of the book. Fisher's bright, fun illustrations were energetic and seemed to match the personality of the main character, Lottie Paris. And though I enjoyed Lottie Paris as a character - the text trips up in a couple of places making it seem a bit awkward as a read aloud.

    I met the author today at the Buckeye Book Fair. She is a very nice person. She has recently changed her style of books, saying that change is good. She had 3 books at the book fair, all by different illustrators. Lottie is a fun little girl who enjoys life very much and seeks fun and answers.

    Loved the illustrations and the little girl but where's the story? There was no conflict or resolution. This was another book that I wanted to love because it is so cute and I love the author, but it just fell flat for me. I do like that the parental figure in it was a father though.

    This is a sassy story about a little girl named Lottie and her way of life. It’s short and sweet and full of things that many little girls know. The images are lovely, and you grow to love Lottie, even when she doesn’t always do as she’s told.

    This book is cute, and I like how the only characters are Lottie and her father, which might help girls with single father's feel less strange. Lots of imagination and fun, and some humor too.
