ISBN
9780544102293
Girls cannot be drummers. Long ago on an island filled with music, no one questioned that rule--until the drum dream girl. In her city of drumbeats, she dreamed of pounding tall congas and tapping small bong s. She had to keep quiet. She had to practice in secret. But when at last her dream-bright music was heard, everyone sang and danced and decided that both girls and boys should be free to drum and dream. Inspired by the childhood of Millo Castro Zaldarriaga, a Chinese-African-Cuban girl who broke Cuba's traditional taboo against female drummers, Drum Dream Girl tells an inspiring true story for dreamers everywhere.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Margarita EnglePublisher: Houghton MifflinPublished: 03/31/2015ISBN: 9780544102293Pages: 48Weight: 0.83lbsSize: 10.00h x 8.30w x 0.40dAward: Georgia Children's Book Award - FinalistAward: Pura Belpre Award - WinnerAward: Charlotte Zolotow Award - WinnerReview Citations: Kirkus Reviews 12/15/2014School Library Journal 01/01/2015 pg. 121Publishers Weekly 01/19/2015Booklist 02/01/2015 pg. 46Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 05/01/2015Horn Book Magazine 05/01/2015 pg. 86Shelf Awareness 04/28/2015Hornbook Guide to Children 07/01/2015 pg. 33 - Superior,Well Above AverageKirkus Best Picture Books 11/15/2015 pg. 54School Library Journal 02/01/2017 pg. 49Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 173968 / Drum Dream Girl: How One Girl's Courage Changed MusicReading Level: 4.2 / Interest Level: Lower Grade / Point Value: 0.5
