Amira is excited for her baby sister's naming ceremony. Friends and family will come to suggest names for the new child. A beautifully illustrated story about multiple generations and family traditions. Favorite quote, "how do I pick a name for baby sister ...think of something meaningful that you would want her to have. A blessing, a wish, a story. Each of your names were carefully picked just for you."
Ashanti is discouraged when she goes to school and discovers her name is hard for her teacher to pronounce, and is different from everyone else. She cries to her mom, who explains the rich history behind her name and what makes her name special. Based on a true story from the author's (Ashanti's) real life. Her goal is to encourage those with unique names.
