Desription: Yoons name means Shining Wisdom, and when she writes it in Korean, it looks happy, like dancing figures. But her father tells her that she must learn to write it in English. In English, all the lines and circles stand alone, which is just how Yoon feels in the United States. Yoon isnt sure that she wants to be YOON. At her new school, she tries out different names - maybe CAT or BIRD. Maybe CUPCAKE! (32 pages) Ages 4-8

Ashay says, "What an adoring face and beautiful art illustrations. The story relates a stiuation in school that some Asian immigrant children actually do experience when they move to the Unided States. As she becomes more comfortable and accepted among her friends, she learns to write and use her new English name. Must have for the classroom and library."
