Welcome to Miss Eva's Top Three! Each month I'll be picking out items from three different areas of the children's section to feature that I've enjoyed -- some new titles, some older ones, but all of them things that have caught my eye! Check out this month's picks below.
Picture book: Alma and How She Got Her Name by Juana Martinez-Neal
I loved everything about this book, from the sweet illustrations to the loving conversation between father and daughter about the origins of her name.
Chapter book: The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls by Claire Legrand
This fun and creepy book centering around two friends at a mysterious orphanage is the perfect mood-setter for Halloween.
Biography: Danza! Amalia Hernández and El Ballet Folklórico de México by Duncan Tonatiuh
Duncan Tonatiuh's look at one of Mexico's preeminent ballerinas is lovely, beautiful, and inspiring.
