the name jar

 starting school means new friends and learning names.
a beautiful book about a just-arrived korean child with a hard-to-pronounce name 
shows how important this can be.
 after having trouble introducing herself to children on the bus, unhei tells her class that she 
"hasn't picked a name yet".  
they start a name jar and help her think of lots of names.
a darling tale about claiming your true identity, and
finding a dear friend in the process.

picture-book beauty.
joy to you.
