THAO: A Picture Book

We rated this book:


People keep messing up Thao’s name. They make fun of her because she’s different. Sometimes she is called Toe or Tail or Tofu or Tao the Cow. Thao would like to change her name to Jennifer. It would be so much easier for her. People wouldn’t mess up her name anymore. Instead, Thao tells everyone how to say her name, her full name. Just don’t misspell her last name, Lam.

I can’t believe people would call her Toe or Tail. They are spelled differently from Thao. I like how in the front and the back of the book, there are pictures of many kids from different countries with different names like Floortje or Jianyu or Awinita. I like how the author/illustrator used cut up paper to illustrate the whole book. It is very cool and creative. I also like how the author/illustrator used actual baby pictures of herself in the book. I recommend this book to kids who are different and who have different names, names people might mispronounce sometimes.
