Miss Eva’s Top Three: October 2018

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 bookAlma 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 bookThe 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.

BiographyDanza! 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.
