Lola's Parol

Growing up, Nuelma "Amy" Legaspi shared a close bond with her lola (grandmother), who was also her friend, cheerleader, and mentor. In this poignant book, Legaspi reflects on her relationship with her lola, and likens her to a parol: a star-shaped lantern and decorative staple in Filipino households during the holiday season. While primarily about Legaspi’s grandmother, Lola’s Parol is also about the people who bring light and love to our lives, and what happens when that light dims. Told in simple verse as a children’s book, Lola’s Parol is a story for every member of the family—for every one who has loved, lost, and found comfort in the warmth and light that memories bring.
