Welcoming Week Story Time - The Name Jar by Yangsook Choi
Its story time at the YMCA. We love this story. A great story about a girl who is considering changing her name because her name is too hard for others to pronounce. Being the new kid in school is hard enough, but what happens when nobody can pronounce your name? Having just moved from Korea, Unhei is anxious about fitting in. So instead of introducing herself on the first day of school, she decides to choose an American name from a glass jar. But while Unhei thinks of being a Suzy, Laura, or Amanda, nothing feels right. With the help of a new friend, Unhei will learn that the best name is her own.Listen on your way home with your kids. You'll love it!
