Loving ourselves and loving others has an acronym - LOLO. And that acronym is now the name of a young character from the newly released children’s book, “Lolo’s Superpower.”

Meet Lolo - the innately confident doll spreading heartfelt messages about self-acceptance, kindness to others, and the belief that being different is a superpower.

The author, Leslie Pitt (based in Minneapolis), is reflective of Lolo, as she has lived with limb loss since she was six years old. One of her goals with her first published children’s book: to empower children, especially with “disabilities,” or what she calls, “differing abilities.”

Another goal: to raise money, because a portion of the book’s proceeds will go to Leslie’s global non-profit aiding children with differing abilities, Project Lolo.

Just as Leslie embraces her differing abilities, Lolo embraces being different from all the other dolls in the toy store. Lolo gets bullied because of this, but is never fazed, because being different is what empowers Lolo the most!

In fact, being different than all of the other dolls is not the only thing that sets Lolo apart - Lolo is also genderless. Leslie wanted all children to embrace the book’s fundamental message and felt that message was more universal with Lolo just being Lolo.
