About La Guitarrista: From the creators of Paletero Man--Latin Grammy-winning musician Lucky Diaz and celebrated artist Micah Player--comes a story about a tenacious girl who achieves her wildest dreams with a little help from her community and a broken guitar. Strum! Strum! Strum! Get ready to rock with la guitarrista! When Canta finds a guitar in the trash, she is one step closer to becoming a rock star. Even though the guitar is broken and she doesn't know how to play, nothing can stop Canta from going after her dreams! Readers will rock out to this empowering tale of resilience, community, the power of music--and never giving up on your dreams. The book includes Spanish words and phrases throughout, an author's note from Lucky Diaz, and a link to the song inspired by the book.
