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.

Illustrations/Photos (if applicable)
Alma and Her Family is a bilingual Spanish/English board book that introduces the words for close family members in both languages positively. This is a great way to introduce another language to your young readers while they are the most receptive to learning language in general. The color pallet is calm with pastel colors used throughout that convey the warmth and love of the family. Overall, a good bilingual book for English or Spanish learners from the youngest of ages.
