ALMA AND HOW SHE GOT HER NAME

by | Read by Adriana Sananes

Children Ages 4-6 • 7 mins. • Unabridged • © 2019

Lively music and narrator Adriana Sananes's rich voice bring Latin flair to this audiobook about a Hispanic-American girl with a too long name. Each one of Alma Sofia Esperanza José Pura Candela's six names has a story. Her father tells Alma about the people she's been named after, including a book lover, a traveler, an artist, a deeply spiritual woman, and an activist. Alma's voice is young and sweet. Her slight Spanish accent contrasts with her father's deep voice and more pronounced accent. This warm, affectionate audiobook celebrates kids' distinct family identities and pride, and it is glorious to hear Sananes's Spanish pronunciations of all of Alma's names.
