Review: This is a lovely and though-provoking story which I think would work best with children around 8 and up. Our Year Four class had very profound discussions around how we treat new people and what our names / background / individuality mean to us and why they are important. A good read-aloud, especially in a class you are trying to get thinking about how well they include others.

Review: Good idea but the story was a bit too long and I think the message was lost as my daughter got bored half way through. I think done in a bit different way would have made the story a bit more punchy. For example if she'd done a show and tell to the class to explain her name/meaning/background and the kids had a realisation that a name is important even if it takes them a bit to learn how to pronounce. They needed to realise that the context and validity of other cultures/names far outweighs the slight difficulty in pronouncing, and the importance of not anglicising a name. I feel like what the author was trying to say didn't really translate through the story. It needed to be more simply told ie her name is just as valid as John etc.
