MY NAME IS ELIZABETH!
Myriad iterations of Addison, Brianna and other multisyllabic doozies occupy the top-baby-name list, making it high time for a book that addresses the mispronounced and mistakenly abbreviated name. Elizabeth, adorably illustrated in agreeable orange and robin s egg blue, likes that there is a queen named after her. But she does not like being called Beth, Lizzy, Liz ( It s E-liz-abeth ) or Betsy ( Not. even. close. ) The book itself is close to perfect. --NY Times, Aug 19, 2011
