Description

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.
