Meet Alma’s family… in two languages! The beloved star of the Caldecott Honor Book “Alma and How She Got Her Name” appears in a series of joy-filled bilingual board books featuring words and simple phrases in English and Spanish.

I play with my cousins. / Juego con mis primas.
I sing to Pajarito. / Le canto a Pajarito.

How much does little Alma love her family? She kisses her daddy, squeezes her mommy, laughs with her grandma, and . . . paints on her artist grandpa (such a good sport!). Juana Martinez-Neal’s bilingual board book brings back familiar characters and introduces new ones in a conversational narration (shown in both languages on every spread) as well as gentle illustrations exuding whimsy and warmth.
