Lola Levine And The Ballet Scheme
By Monica Brown
Illustrated by Angela Dominguez
A heartwarming chapter book series starring Lola Levine, a biracial, bicultural second grader by acclaimed author Monica Brown.
When new girl Bella, a ballet dancer, walks into Lola's class at Northland Elementary, all she can see is pink everywhere--pink ribbons, pink sweatshirt, and pink tennis shoes! Pink is Lola's least favorite color.
But when Lola and Bella start off on the wrong foot, and an argument happens in class, they are forced to try each other's favorite interests. After a day on the soccer field and an attempt at pirouettes, it turns out that ballerinas and soccer players have more in common than Lola ever thought possible. Can Lola put her opinions aside and make her first real friend who is a girl?
With Monica Brown's fun text and Angela Dominguez's adorable illustrations, Lola will experience first hand the knowledge of walking in someone else's shoes.
