After her first day of school, a little girl declares she is never going back because nobody can say her name. Not even her teacher! Walking home the little girl's mother teaches her the beauty and strength found in a name through rhythm, song, and poetry. An index to the meanings of all the names in the book is found in the back.
A must-read for back-to-school, Your Name is a Song is an ode to the names of many cultures and an example to children that learning each other's names is an important act of kindness.
