What's in a name? Poor Josephina thinks there's a lot. She hates her old-fashioned, unusual name. Why couldn't she have a pretty name like "Sarah" or "Amy"?
Josephina is in a horrible mood until her grandma tells her the story of her namesake, Great-Aunt Josephina. Great-Aunt Josephina was an adventurer, explorer, and artist who, unlike Josephina's grandmother, was not afraid of snakes and spiders. One day Great-Aunt Josephina followed her heart and went to explore the Great Jungle, leaving behind a gold locket. Many years later, Josephina's grandmother remembers the locket and with it finds the courage to move to the United States and find her own adventure.
Diane Engel captures the magic of finding connections with role models from the past and the importance of communicating family heritage to younger generations. Engel's engaging watercolors give life to the curious, mischievous, and sometimes tempestuous Josephina as well as to her adventurous namesake.
