This post is in partnership with The Children’s Book Review and Amy Nielander
This is one of those books that would be fun to look at even if there were no words. The characters are all different and have their own personalities. When Edimorwhitimormiligimmus Tug is at home with his extended family, he is always smiling and full of joy. He loves spending time with each member of the family and does a variety of activities.
At school he has a little trouble because his name is so long. Even his teacher can’t pronounce it. She doesn’t want to bother trying so she decides to call him Ed for short. He doesn’t want to be called Ed. Children will love to find out what Edimorwhitimormiligimmus does to help people remember his name.
I love how this book shares that children should be thankful for their family’s influence and to be proud of their names. My favorite part of this book are the adorable illustrations.

Publisher’s Book Summary: 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!
