"Embarrassed by her long, unusual last name, an 8-year old girl discovers a reason to be proud of her heritage in Pillalamarri's debut children's book. Young readers will delight in Leela...an appealing protagonist who's inquisitive, smart and sensitive. Pillalamarri does a fine job of developing her characters. The lovely illustrations, featuring the spunky, freckled Leela, bring the perfectly chosen scenes to vivid life. The prose is smooth, and the dialogue rings with authenticity throughout. Pillalamarri also includes ideas for lessons on genealogy and etymology, including three worksheets for classroom use. A solid introduction to discovering one's own heritage that also teaches respect for others'." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS, November 2014 Meet Leela. She goes to second grade and has lots of fun hanging out with her three best friends. But there's a big problem. It's her last name. It's really long, hard to say and just plain weird! Well, at least that's what Leela thinks - until she encounters a few amazing people, has a few interesting adventures and obtains some mysterious objects that reveal the history and meaning behind names. Now Leela is curious about her own. Will she ever come to like her last name? And, more importantly, will she learn its true meaning in time for the school's annual talent show?! DETAILED DESCRIPTION Have you ever come across a long or difficult-to-pronounce name? Maybe your own or a friend's? Do you know where names come from and what they mean? Do you know your family's heritage? Well, you are not alone! Take an exciting journey through the eyes of a bright-eyed little girl named Leela who, through a series of adventures, comes to realize the unique meaning behind last names and where they come from! This children's early chapter book sheds light on diversity and culture in and around kids today - through the subtle meaning behind names. The book also has an anti-bullying message in its story. Also found at the end of the book are some fun exercises kids can do themselves to find out more about their name and family history! A great addition to social sciences curriculum or for in-class use by teachers. Written with early readers in mind, this chapter book will be a great addition to your growing child's library along with teaching them about addressing their emotions & feelings, exploring family history and genealogy, establishing their identity, and forming friendships.
