Alma thinks that her name is too long & never fits, until her dad explains all of the family members she was named after and what makes them so special.

In her author-illustrator debut, Juana Martinez-Neal opens a treasure box of discovery for children who may be curious about their own origin or name story.

Spanish edition of Alma and How She Got Her Name, winner of a Caldecott Honor. A 2018 libro del mes that we're excited to have back in stock!

ADDITIONAL PRAISE

"Martinez-Neal’s first outing as author is a winner—her velvety and largely monochromatic pencil drawings, punctuated with cherry red, teem with emotional intimacy. It’s an origin story that envelops readers like a hug." [Publishers Weekly]

"Mostly monochromatic against a cream background, the illustrations—print transfers with graphite and colored pencils—are delightful, capturing the distinctive essences of Alma’s many namesakes...A celebration of identity, family and belonging." [Kirkus]
