"My name is Rebecca Romm" is an adorable book about a little girl who at first does not like all the attention she receives for her name, but soon comes to appreciate how special it is to be named after someone well-loved. My boys and I love the rhythm and rhyme of this book. Both of my boys (ages 4 & 7) love learning about history and important people, and so they really appreciated the illustrations and facts about famous people like Neil Armstrong and Bob Dylan! Also, the illustrations are beautiful and captivating. This is a wonderful book that makes me feel connected to my kids each time we read it together.

My Name is Rebecca Romm is my children's new favorite book. Rebecca is an adorable and independent young girl who longs to have a truly original name, rather than the family name she is given. The lyrical prose is as captivating as the freckled-face Rebecca herself. After reading the book, my children were curious to learn more about the thought, meaning and people behind their names as well. As an added bonus, this book introduced them to significant names in both history and geography. It's a must read!

My Name is Rebecca Romm...is a sweet children's book. Rebecca learns to finally appreciate her name through a school assignment. My son is named after my grandfather, similar to Rebecca in the story, so it's a great way to explain the connection. The book also talks about children named after famous people, places, etc., so I think all kids can relate. The illustrations are adorable and my son loves the rhymes. I recommend this book!
