¡Olé! Flamenco

By Picture Books & Pirouettes

George Ancona is an award-winning photographer and author with a rich Mexican-American heritage. Olé Flamenco (just published by multicultural publisher Lee & Low Books) is Ancona’s latest creation. Words and photos show the “rapid stamping of the heels and thumping of the soles” and the twists and turns of the arms, hands, and fingers that help define the dance. They also show the sharp, strong movements of male dancers and the flair and passion with which women swish their skirts back and forth through the air. To this book. . .I say Olé! —Picture Books & Pirouettes
