This is one of my very favorites from 2018. A beautiful celebration of a child's relationship with her father, her name, and her ancestors. Highly recommend.

Alma Sofia Esperanza Jose Pura Candela has a very long name. In fact, it is too long if you ask her. Children and adults will enjoy hearing the story of how Alma got her name. The illustrations are simple but telling. I like how Spanish and English words are woven through the story in a seamless fashion. A lovely book that is well deserving of the Caldecott Honor Award in 2019.
