Little Chanclas

LA Times

From El Paso’s Cinco Puntos Press comes the story of tiny Lily, who loves her flip-flops so much that her family has nicknamed her Little Chanclas by José Lozano (Cinco Puntos: 32 pp, $16.95, ages 5 -9). From Chata’s Market to Benny’s Burgerteria and on to the Department of Motor Vehicles, Lily flip-flops her chanclas here, there and everywhere. However, when she breaks their fragile straps while dancing at a particularly fun party, a dilemma ensues — without her beloved shoes, is she still Little Chanclas? Jose Lozano’s folk art breathes life into this delightfully humorous tale, told in both Spanish and English. Any child with a particularly beloved toy or item of clothing will be able to relate to Lily, and this story has the potential to lead to discussions about ownership, language, culture and life.
