Seller's Description:

A 2019 Caldecott Honor Book What_ã_s in a name? For one little girl, her very long name tells the vibrant story of where she came from _ã” and who she may one day be. If you ask her, Alma Sofia Esperanza Josê© Pura Candela has way too many names: six! How did such a small person wind up with such a large name? Alma turns to Daddy for an answer and learns of Sofia, the grandmother who loved books and flowers; Esperanza, the great-grandmother who longed to travel; Josê©, the grandfather who was an artist; and other namesakes, too. As she hears the story of her name, Alma starts to think it might be a perfect fit after all _ã” and realizes that she will one day have her own story to tell. In her author-illustrator debut, Juana Martinez-Neal opens a treasure box of discovery for children who may be curious about their own origin stories or names.
