This book first captured my attention because I had an Aunt Alma and it's not a name you hear very frequently anymore. In this book, we meet Alma Sofia Esperanza Jose Pura Candela -and she thinks her name is way too long. Alma's father tells the tale of why and how she got her name throughout this tale. Each one of her names is special and was chosen for a reason. Her father relates to her how she is like each person she was named after and ultimately why her first name - Alma - is unique to her. The illustrations have a feeling of nostalgia, which gives significance to the history being taught. I love the muted colors used in the book, against the contrast of Alma's red outfit.

I like the idea of teaching children the significance and history behind their name. The library I work has a varied degree of diversity. Teaching and learning about why we have longer names, shorter names, what are names mean, etc. helps breed understanding and tolerance. When reading this book to children, I would have a special craft at the end where they could make a family tree - either on paper or using craft supplies like felt for leaves and pipe cleaners for stems/branches. They could write family members names on the leaves. I think it would also be fun after the book was read to discuss what everyone's name means. Then I would also tell them how I got my name. My dad wanted to name me Cassandra, Penelope or Alexandria - my mom didn't want me to have a name that could be shortened - my grandma wanted me to have a name from the Bible. My grandma won out and they named me Sarah. I always liked that when I was younger because Sarah means princess. My middle name was to be either my mom's or my grandma's - Lynn or Lee - since my grandma won the first name vote, they went with Lynn as my middle name - which means lake. My maiden name was Oldham and I hated that - but then I found out it was a town in England. So I always liked to tell people that I was a princess of the lakes in England. ( )

This book is about a little girl who does not like her long name. Her father takes her through all the different people in her family that she is named after telling her what great character traits they have in common. When she asks where she got her first name from he tells her that it is all her own for her to make her own story with. This is a great book for talking about the significance of a name. It also highlights ( )

Primary; Fiction; This is a sweet story about a little girl with a long name. She doesn't like it because it never fits, but when her father explains the sake of each part of her name, she learns to love all the names that make her who she it, but Alma, her first name, is her story to tell and her name to create. This a great story for all children and a great reminder to be proud of who we are and where we come from. ( )

This story is sweet at it tells about this little girls name and why her father chose the names for her because it is so long. As he describes the reasoning for the names, she begins to understand and grow into them but realizes the name Alama is picked just for her to make her own story. I would use this in the classroom to represent self identity and coming to know who you are and being confident in that. ( )

I love how alma wanted to explore her roots. It reminds me of myself when I was younger always asking my Tata for answers. And always asking my mom about my name too.
