Name Jar Unhei, a young Korean girl, is nervous about her first day at school in a new country. Fearing she will be teased for her unusual name, she announces that she has yet to pick one. Her classmates fill a jar with scraps of paper suggesting names, but soon she gains enough confidence to explain the pronunciation and meaning of her real name. This simple picture book deals sensitively with dilemmas of cultural difference.
