Happy Perfect Picture Book Friday, dear friends. One of my favorite kid-lit people has a brand new book that launched this month and I couldn’t wait to share the book with all of you.
Oh, and make sure you stick around and leave a comment at the end…and share the post on social media because the author, the wonderful Kirsti Call, and her publisher, HMH, are generously offering a giveaway.
LET’S ALL SING HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Chana Stiefel’s newest picture book that launches TODAY:
Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to WAKAWAKALOCH, Happy Birthday to You!
MY NAME IS WAKAWAKALOCH
Written by Chana Stiefel
Illustrated by Mary Sullivan
Published by HMH Books for Young Readers (August 27, 2019)
Here’s a bit about the book:
No one can pronounce Wakawakaloch’s name. Why couldn’t she be called something simple . . . like Gloop? That’s a name you can find on a T-shirt! But after a visit with her village’s elder, Wakawakaloch discovers what her name means, and how powerful names can be. Gloop may be easy to say, but the girl who helps her friends embrace differences and wear their names proudly? Her name is Wakawakaloch!
