Description
What's in a name? For one little girl, her very long name tells the vibrant story of where she came from - and who she may one day be. Spanish language edition! If you ask her, Alma Sofia Esperanza Jose Pura Candela has way too many names: six! Just think of how hard it is to fit them all on the back of a little photograph How did such a small person wind up with such a large name? Alma turns to Daddy for an answer and learns of Sofia, the grandmother who loved books and flowers; Esperanza, the great-grandmother who longed to travel; Jose, the grandfather who was an artist; and other namesakes too. As she hears the story of her name, Alma starts to think it might be a perfect fit after all - and realizes that she will one day have her own story to tell. 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.
