Get to know Alma, head to toe . . . 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 have two eyes, one nose, and a mouth. / Tengo dos ojos, una nariz y una boca.
I see you, Pajarito! / ¡Te veo, Pajarito!

Alma is known for her iconic stripes—but there’s more she’d like to show you! She has arms, hands, and fingers for patting a pet bird—as well as legs, feet, toes, and one adorable belly, below her ever-present heart. Juana Martinez-Neal’s bilingual board book teaches body parts while sharing moments in a little girl’s world, in a conversational narration (shown in both languages on every spread) combined with gentle, inviting illustrations.

Alma, Head to Toe takes the concept of learning the names of your body parts one step further by doing it in Spanish and English. The simple language and illustrations make it an easy way to learn a lot of important words for your body and how they then work together in a sentence. This is a great tool for anyone beginning to learn another language or for young children who are developing language to begin with. The illustrations were not my favorite but they worked to communicate the language well. Overall, it was a good English and Spanish language book to learn basic body parts.
