A dear book with charming illustrations that manages to be both delicate and strong at the same time. Alma, and her readers, are wrapped up in the beautiful vines and tendrils of family. Alma's connection to those elders she will never meet is forged through her father and her name and his relationship to them is also maintained through Alma and her name. And, even better, this book appeals to children, and not just sappy adults!
