32 Pages

Ages 5-8

West Margin Press

A sweet, whimsical story about the meaningfulness behind a person’s name and the power of accepting people just as they are.

Edimorwhitimormiligimmus Tug has a very special name that is all his own. But his teacher thinks it’s too long and hard to say. One day she shortens it to. . . Ed.

But he loves his name just the way it is. So he comes up with a plan—if he can teach everyone his name, maybe they’ll love it too!

Sweet and whimsical, My Name Is Not Ed Tug empowers readers to own their identities and proudly celebrate who they are.

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A witty and fun story for the entire family. Celebrate who you are, no matter what it takes. Edimorwhitimormiligimmus is quite the mouthful for anyone to sound out. So when his teacher shortens it to Ed (without permission) he didn’t happy about it. After all, each part of his name comes from a beloved family member. He comes up with a plan to help the classroom remember how to pronounce his name. Using name tags and explaining each part of his name to different students, he achieves exactly what he’s trying to do! I love everything about this book, especially the importance of family to Edimorwhitimormiligimmus. He is an inspiration to all who will read this book, which I highly recommend you do!
