★ Martinez-Neal brings her gentle story to life through beautiful graphite and colored pencil artwork, set against cream-colored backgrounds. Soft blue and red details pop against the charcoal scenes, which perfectly reflect the snapshots of Alma’s family. While Alma feels enriched by learning her family’s history, she is also empowered by the knowledge that she will give her name, Alma, its own story. —Starred review

De Colores:

★ In Alma’s search for her identity, Martinez-Neal tells a gentle story of family culture and history and fills it with illustrative detail that will encourage the youngest readers to embark on their own journeys of self- and family discovery. Youngest readers (and older readers as well) will relate to “Alma y cómo obtuvo su nombre” and “Alma and How She Got Her Name”, and teachers and librarians will find tons of teachable moments here. Both versions of this loving story are highly recommended. —Beverly Slapin
