My Name Is Elizabeth!

“This debut picture-book offering from Dunklee and Forsythe is close enough to perfect in its tone, pacing and interplay between words and pictures: Wonderful.”
— Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review, April 2011

“Readers who take pride in their names (especially those who have had their names butchered) may be similarly moved to express that ownership vocally.”
— Publishers Weekly, September 2011

“First-time children's author Annika Dunklee hits the mark with a spunky character who is guaranteed to charm early readers and parents alike.”— Quill & Quire, September 2011

“The book itself is close to perfect.”
— The New York Times, August 2011

“This isn't just a book about one particular name. It's about making it clear to the world who you really are. A lesson some grown-ups could stand to learn as well.”
— Elizabeth Bird, SLJ.com, July 2011

“Children who have had similar experiences will certainly relate to Elizabeth and may be inspired by her directness.”
— School Library Journal, October 2011
