  1. Thanks for entering the giveaway on my blog, which led me to yours. What a beautiful blog you have! This is a great list of resources as well. So happy to find another dancer who loves books!!

  2. Thank you so much Kerry! I adore the Lola book and am so inspired by it. I have been writing a Children's Guide to Flamenco for the past few years and hope one day to actually get it into print. Have a wonderful day!

  3. HI Kerry, I just thought you might find it fun to know that I will be working with Barefoot Books in Concord MA for their release of Lola's fandango. The illustrator will be there and she will read the book to the children (yeah I can get a signed copy!) and then do a craft with them. I will be leading them in a flamenco class! So much fun!
