Product description

Product Description

Olátòrò, a Nigerian American nine-year-old girl, comes to terms with her Yorùbá name after facing a name-calling incident in her school, a diverse educational setting in America. Self-consciousness turns to new appreciation for herself, her name, and her peers with the help of a feisty friend, a compassionate teacher, and her encouraging father.

This ebook is expanded and adapted from a story first published in SKIPPING STONES, an award-winning international multicultural literary magazine. The appendix includes a Name Appreciation Day activity that Educators, Parents/Guardians, and other Adult Caregivers can reference and help facilitate.

On promotional days, this book has made the Amazon bestselling lists in the following categories:
#2 in Friendship, Social Skills and School Life > Self-Esteem and Self-Respect
#4 in Friendship, Social Skills and School Life > Bullies
#9 in Friendship, Social Skills and School Life > Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence
