Lola's Fandango

Lola lives in a Spanish community and is always in the shadow of her older sister, until one day when she finds Flamenco shoes in her mother’s closet. After several secret lessons with her father on the roof of their apartment building, Lola gets her chance to shine with a performance on her mother’s birthday. Written by Anna Witte and illustrated by Micha Archer, this is a great story about finding your inner voice. The book comes with an audio CD narrated by The Amador Family and accompanied by original Flamenco music. Barefoot Books prints only with vegetable-based ink and uses pulp from sustainable sources.
