Alma at Home/Alma en casa

Candlewick. (Alma’s Words). Oct. 2024. 24p. Board. $8.99. ISBN 9781536232332. BL.
Baby-Toddler–Alma, the beloved protagonist of Alma and How She Got Her Name, welcomes readers to her home/casa. Short bilingual sentences showcase Alma’s morning routine, from waking up to saying farewell to her brother as he heads out for school. Other daily practices, accompanied by sweet illustrations of her home, pajarito, and family, are incorporated, bringing warmth to this simple story. In Alma, Where Is Pajarito? ¿Dónde está pajarito? (see ISBN 9781536232349), Martínez-Neal introduces readers to prepositions while Alma is in search of her bird friend. The playful text, layout, and close-up illustrations of Alma’s quests in finding Pajarito around the house, will inspire little ones to play hide-and-seek and maybe want their own pet.
VERDICT Young Alma fans will delight in these new offerings set in her world.
