  1. Polly Shafer

    This is a cute book that helps everyone to see that labeling a person can sometimes be hurtful.

  2. Tay Yit Ping (Ika Picture Story House)

    I fell in love with this book the moment I laid eyes on its cover where the little girl was hanging upside down confidently. 

    The message of this story is an important one, which is that we do not live according to other people’s opinions. I personally identified with Li-Na as I was often labelled a tomboy when I was growing up. In fact, I was jeered for laughing too loud, and I may or may not have punched that boy who bullied me for that. This book should have been there during my childhood, to tell me that it is perfectly alright for me to be myself. 

    Now, I am so happy for all the Li-Nas, Betsy(s), Georgies, Bens, Toms, and Kevins around the world. From this book, they can learn that stereotyping does not shape us, but love does.

  3. Linda Lingard

    What is your name and who are you? In Li Na is My Name, author Lisa Wee shows that a girl and a boy is so much more than one facet of character.
    This book should be a comfort to a girl or boy who has felt pigeon-holed and also gives a word of advice to grown-ups to allow a child to bloom.

  4. Dr Daksha Hirani

    “Childhood is a magical time in one’s life as we all explore the new world we have come into and our relationship with it. It is a time full of wonder, curiosity and adventure. Teasing and ridiculing a child can destroy this magic. Accept children as they are without the need to put them down or entertain ourselves at their expense. The damage and trauma from this can be debilitating and simply adds more misery in the world. Keep the magic going, accept and uplift children for who they are, after all are our future too. 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.”
