About this book
What's In a Name?
After reviewing why the heroine's name was changed from She-Who-Is-Alone to One-Who-Dearly-Loved-Her-People, discuss how the names describe the character and the change she underwent. Invite interested students to make up an old and a new descriptive name for themselves based on a change in their own behavior or ideas. Students can draw a picture to illustrate each name. To share their work, students might discuss it with a partner, keep it in their own Story-Idea folder, or contribute it to a class Guess-Who-I-Am book to place on a reading table.
