G My Name is Girl by Dawn Masi

Masi celebrates friends from A to Z from around the world through a remixed, old-school playground song. Friends, neighbors, and family accompany each girl as they alliteratively chant their names, the countries they live in, and qualities about themselves. “N, my name is NELLY, and my granny’s name is NINA./ We come from NEW ZEALAND, and we are NURTURING.” Although the colorful illustrations honor ethnic and racial diversity along with depictions of varied abilities, face and body shape remains consistent throughout. The descriptive vocabulary included in this text can spark interesting discussions, in addition to exploring the geography of the world.
