Book Review: The Change Your Name Store (AND A GIVEAWAY!)


The Change Your Name Story, written by Leanne Shirtliffe and illustrated by Tina Kugler is packed with humor and heart and... names! Tina has generously offered a signed copy as a giveaway - be sure to read to the end for details!


I did a big double take on the opening page. What a powerful way to kick a story off! It's a great first impression of our protagonist, Wilma Lee Wu - both in the art and that opening line!



This is such a fun read-aloud book and perfect for leisurely re-reads. You'll want to pick out all the fun names and details that Tina has peppered throughout. Wilma Lee Wu's story speaks to diversity, but also that universal feeling we have at times of just not liking our names. I'll leave the rest of the story as a surprise, as it should be!
