Read This! Drum Dream Girl


Once upon a time, on the island of music, there was a girl who loved to drum, but only boys were allowed to become drummers. A lyrical, lushly illustrated book inspired by Millo Castro Zaldarriaga, the Chinese-African-Cuban girl who broke Cuba’s taboo on against female drummers. Margarita Engle is a Cuban-American poet and her words shine in Drum Dream Girl. Rafael Lopez won the Pura Belpré Medal for his beautiful illustrations in this book. Such a delightful read!
