Tikki Tikki Tembo | Arlene Mosel, Blair Lent
post image

I read this to my children: the boy with the long name who fell down the well. It‘s a re-creation of an ancient Chinese folktale teaching the danger of having such an honorable name as Tikki tikki tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo.


Hazel2019 This is a great book! However, my 5 year old did worry about the little boy for days after reading the book...😊 11h

Apex Hides the Hurt | Colson Whitehead

Another hit from Colson. The linguist in me especially loved all the musings of "nomenclature consultancy" ?

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Congrats! Chose the same name for our daughter. I remember reading a quotation (I think from George Orwell) that was something along the lines of, “if I had a daughter, I would name her Elizabeth, because then she would be both smart and beautiful” ❤️❤️❤️ 1mo

Alma and How She Got Her Name | Juana Martinez-Neal

My name is too long, Daddy, It never fits.

Great for children that can sometimes feel like they are different.

This caldecott winner is simple and beautiful. The illistrations are no doubt beautiful but the essence of the story is helped created by the artictic hue.

I do not think that I would use this book in my classroom. The story is alright but I think time spent on this book could be used on a book that had more meaning to it.

Tikki Tikki Tembo | Arlene Mosel, Blair Lent

Tikki Tikki Tembo is a picture book that follows two brothers that fall into a well. The one brother who has a significantly longer name finds it harder to yell out his name for help. This story is good for a laugh in the classroom.
