About the Book

From Grammy Award–winning singer Ashanti comes an empowering story about a girl who learns to love her unique name. A perfect pick for classrooms and all story times!

First days aren’t easy for a girl with a name like Ashanti. It feels like no one can pronounce it correctly! But when she talks to her mom, Ashanti learns that names have meaning and deserve to be said and loved out loud. Her name tells her story.

Inspired by Ashanti’s own experience, this poetic celebration shares the joy that one child finds in her name and reminds us to honor all the different names around us.

Fans of Sulwe, written by Lupita Nyong’o, Your Name Is a Song, written by Jamilah Thompkins-Bigelow, and Eyes that Kiss in the Corners, written by Joanna Ho, will enjoy this book, too.
