Help Alma find Pajarito . . . in two languages! The celebrated series of bilingual board books continues, with a focus on prepositions—and starring the subject of the Caldecott Honor Book Alma and How She Got Her Name.

Where is Pajarito? / ¿Dónde está Pajarito?
Is he under my blanket? / ¿Estará debajo de mi frazada?

Where is Alma’s flying friend Pajarito? Is that him behind the books? Or beside the stool? Could he be between the hats? Now he’s above Alma—and about to land on a very funny perch! In a new entry in this joyful board-book series, award-winning author-illustrator Juana Martinez-Neal follows little Alma on a search for her mischievous pet bird, using a conversational narrative that weaves in simple prepositions—and features words and phrases in English and Spanish on every spread.
Juana Martinez-Neal is the Peruvian-born daughter and granddaughter of painters. Her debut as an author-illustrator, the Caldecott Honor Book Alma and How She Got Her Name, which was published in Spanish as Alma y cómo obtuvo su nombre, inspired the first two board books in this bilingual series, Alma, Head to Toe / Alma, de pies a cabeza and Alma and Her Family / Alma y su familia. Juana Martinez-Neal is the creator of the acclaimed Zonia’s Rain Forest and the illustrator of La Princesa and the Pea by Susan Middleton Elya, for which she won a Pura Belpré Illustrator Award, Babymoon by Hayley Barrett, and Fry Bread: A Native American Family Story by Kevin Noble Maillard, which won a Robert F. Sibert Medal. She also co-illustrated, with Molly Idle, I Don’t Care by Julie Fogliano. Juana Martinez-Neal lives in Connecticut with her family. Visit her online at www.juanamartinezneal.com.
