Nonfiction Picture Book
Reading age: 8 years and up

You are not lost! You are not alone! A GPS system navigates you to where you are going, but your name could lead to what you are looking for. What's in a name? Ekuwah Mends uses the alphabet letters to answer that question. She opens a window into her family, history, culture, language, geography, and more. Look through Ekuwah's actual family photos, Mother's artwork, and Father's artifact collection. My Name is an Address comes to life and touches your heart. Exit the story by finding your own Akan name. Also, return when you need to feel connected. Ultimately, be inspired to find your own address.
