Alma and How She Got Her Name | Little Lit Book Series

All month long we’ll be sharing books about family.

What’s in a name?  A little girl with a very long name wonders about hers.  One day her father sits her down and tells her the meaning behind that long name of hers.  Her beautiful family history unfolds right before her eyes and she sees that each and every part of her name, Alma Sofia Esperanza José Pura Candela, was chosen just for her.  And now it’s time for Alma to write her own story.

Alma and How She Got Her Name was written and illustrated by Juana Martinez-Neal and published by Candlewick Press.
