An interview with Kenneth and Sarah Jane Wright
What inspired the creation of Lola Dutch?
We see Lola Dutch as an emblem of creative energy personified: a figure of active, fun, and inspired learning. All kids are born curious, but some need a bit of encouragement to create.
We also hope Lola Dutch will give parents and teachers confidence to help those kids, even when, at their peak imaginative and active times, we find ourselves saying, 'You are just too much'(Always with a smile, of course) Passive learning might often feel like the easier path.
but creativity and hands-on learning is never 'too much'.
Our goal is for Lola Dutch to inspire kids to be curious about the world around them, and then to dive in and create on their own. Lola Dutch is the first in a series of picture books that will
continue to explore the endless fun in self-directed, creative learning, and we hope you find that 'a little bit much' is just enough.
