"How Tía Lola Learned to Teach is humorous and endearing, creating characters that are well-described, creating a community with quirks. The community is somewhat idyllic, though not impossible. The optimism in the book results in more positive outcomes than negative.
[...]
How Tía Lola Learned to Teach creates a longing for multi-generational homes and stronger communities. If a Reader already has these pleasures, the read is life-affirming."
