Via Rockstar Book Tours:

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.

 Our Take:

Colorful illustrations and crisp text enliven this sweet story about a little girl who refuses to be stereotyped as a “tomboy.” Along the way, Li-Na learns lessons about independence, leadership, and the beauty of kindness.

As old as Shakespeare (and before), “To thine own self be true” isn’t exactly a new theme. So it’s pretty predictable. But vibrant colors and an upbeat tone animate this fresh take on a well-worn theme. Young readers will enjoy the lavish illustrations and easy-to-read text. (Note that the title varies between “Li-Na,” “Li Na” and “Lina.”)

Our Rating: 3.0
