Getting to feel at home in a new country

YoonÕs name means Shining Wisdom, and when she writes it in Korean, it looks happy, like dancing figures. But her father tells her that she must learn to write it in English. In English, all the lines and circles stand alone, which is just how Yoon feels in the United States. Yoon isnÕt sure that she wants to be YOON. At her new school, she tries out different names Ð maybe CAT or BIRD. Maybe CUPCAKE!

Helen RecorvitsÕs spare and inspiring story about a little girl finding her place in a new country is given luminous pictures filled with surprising vistas and dreamscapes by Gabi Swiatkowska.

My Name Is Yoon is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
