I Want A Nickname
NYC Big Book Award Winner
It’s not Sha-Dee-Ah, Shaw-Day-Uh, or Sha-Dee-Uh…it’s Shadaia!
Frustrated with everyone mispronouncing her name, Shadaia decides she needs a nickname. Maybe that will help everyone get it right. I Want a Nickname is a picture book about empowerment, self-esteem, and loving the meaning behind your name.
This powerful, own-voices picture book from author, Tradara McLaurine, will encourage all children to be proud of the name they’re given. Perfect for children ages 4-7 and for fans of Alma and How She Got Her Name by Juana Martinez-Neal and Your Name is a Song by Jamilah Thompkins-Bigelow.
5-Star Review from Readers’ Favorite
The language is simple so young readers can follow and work on their reading skills. The illustrations are bright, bold, colorful, and full of life, sometimes pensive and, at other times, full of energy. This is a very empowering story that will inspire young readers to be comfortable with their self-identity, which includes their name. – Emily-Jane Hills Orford, Readers’ Favorite
