Do you get teased by others for being a weirdo, a geek, a
nerd or a bookworm? Friends, families and neighbours around Li-Na felt it was
affectionate to tease her for her not-so-girly hobbies and clothing. Li-Na is
about a little girl who refused to be stereotyped. It is a story that
encourages kids to be kids until they are ready to be who they want to be. Li
Na Is My Name is a book that is as relevant then as it is now. Wishing Li Na’s
spirit, grit and resilience to all children. Love the way she stays true to herself. Let’s spread this so all children love themselves for just who they
are.

 Review:

“This
engaging tale encourages resistance to gender stereotypes and highlights the
power of discomfiting labels.”
Kirkus

Before I begin my review I quickly have to thank Rockstar Book Tours for allowing me to be a part of this amazing tour and for graciously providing a copy of the book for me to read and review for my tour stop today.

Li Na is my Name is written and illustrated by the author Lisa Wee. This is a debut picture book.

I have to start off by saying that this is a super cute and must-read book for everyone. We need to teach our kids that it’s okay to be who they want to be and to stay true to who they are. It’s not okay to tease someone because they are doing something we think is not right. Why should little girls be teased and called tomboys if they don’t dress and act all girly? We need to teach our kids to be confident.

The illustrations are bright and colorful.

Li-Na is a little girl who loves to do all kinds of things. Everyone teases her and calls her a tomboy just because she likes to climb trees, speed down the lane on roller blades, etc. Li Na stands up and speaks her mind and gets everyone to listen. We can do anything we want because we have a name. Everything shouldn’t be gender assigned because if boys can do it so can girls. No one is better than the other. It shouldn’t matter if boys and girls wear pink or blue. They are just clothes.

Why should titles such as nerd, a geek or bookworm define who we are? It’s little words like this that have a huge impact on kids growing up. As humans we love to put labels on everything, but why?

We need more little girls like Li Na who stand up and not let those names bring you down.

I am definitely excited to see what Lisa does next. I plan on picking up a copy of this picture book to add to my collection.
