Federico García Lorca

Original title: "Federico García Lorca"
Author: Georgina Lázaro

Book review: This book, written in verse and using the cadence and style of Federico García Lorca evokes the spirit and style of the beloved 20th century poet and playwright and gives children a close personal experience with classic Spanish literature in a picture book biography.  It paints a picture of the artist as a fragile, sensitive young boy who finds his strength in stories, songs, plays and books. Federico García Lorca celebrates the beauty of the Spanish language and the healing power of words. This is a winner of  The Pura Belpré Author Honor Book 2010 and The 2010 Notable Children’s Books (ALSC). (By Nellie B. Mulkay)
