Reviews

2024 Notable Social Studies Trade Books List

"
The lyrical text is rhythmically pleasing and constructed to pointedly contrast the boy's initial shame with the love, pride, and joy his name evokes. This contrast is evident in Prabhat's bold digital illustrations as well; the artist adeptly uses a palette of blue, green, orange, and brown to capture and express the protagonist's shifting emotions." --School Library Journal, starred review

"After a school day of feeling that 'I'M DIFFERENT, ' parental reassurances remind him that his name means he is cherished and wrapped 'together/ With those who came before.'" --Publishers Weekly
