Recommended Children's Books: Alma by Juana Martinez-Neal

Alma and How She Got Her Name
By Juana Martinez-Neal

Feels: Warming. A VERY special read!

Description: ALMA, by Juana Martinez-Neal, is an elegant, colorful tale about heritage and self-discovery.

Notes: As a picture book publisher, I study HUNDREDS of picture books each year, keeping detailed notes for each book and in an extensive spreadsheet.

As you probably guessed, I review a lot of PBs that I don't think get enough love and others that perhaps get a large lump sum of exposure compared to a lot of smaller, overlooked publications.

This book's popularity is in perfect harmony with its substance and elegance. If ALMA isn't already a part of your collection, I recommend adding it or checking it out at your local library.
