The Name Jar

Do you like your name? In “The Name Jar” , Unhei doesn’t like her name. She came from Korea, so her name wasn’t American. The kids made fun of her name on the school bus. She wanted a new name. The kids filled a jar with names for her. Get the book and see if she gets a new name or not.

I like the book because the kids helped Unhei. I like the pictures they were very colorful. I learned that being different is ok.

I recommend this book to kids that go to a new school. They can learn a lot from Unhei.
