My Name Is Elizabeth
My Name is Elizabeth by Annika Dunklee
Illustrated by Matthew Forsythe
Her name is Elizabeth. She loves how long her name is, how it feels when she says it, and that a queen was named after her. You know what she doesn't like? When people call her names other than Elizabeth. Like Beth, or Liz, or Betsy. When she finally explodes and lets them all know, she actually gets her way. With one exception.
Using dialogue bubbles, My Name is Elizabeth captures the frustrations of a young girl who can't control what adults call her. Or can she? With her quirky pet duck, two tone illustrations, this enjoyable picture book grabs you with its simplicity with a final scene that will have you smiling.
