"One snowy day in Connecticut, little Loli sits dreaming of her Grampa's coffee farm in Alajuela, Costa Rica, a very special place in her heart. Suddenly a magical hummingbird named Colibrí appears and transports Loli and her friends from the cold winter to sunny Central America, where they discover the many joys of opening up their hearts and souls to a new language and culture. Whimsical watercolor pictures help bring both the countryside of Costa Rica and the wintery landscape of Connecticut to life. Hidden in each picture is a magical hummingbird, which helps engage even the youngest children. This bilingual story and with embedded song will engage children of all ages! Musical notations for the song are incluced along with Fun Facts of Costa Rica.
