"Legacy, what is legacy?
It's planting seeds in a garden you will never see."

MY NAME IS AN ADDRESS is a treasure of a book that educates and affirms children's identities through the very name that identifies them to the world.

"My Name is An Address" takes the reader on a journey involving the authors name and, in the process, celebrates her Ghanian family history. Now, more than ever, our children should be encouraged to value their names and addresses, as well as those of their friends, neighbours and community members. Ekuwah Mends Moses has written a beautiful, personal story that will encourage readers to find "their address".

Ekuwah, I truly enjoyed reading this book about the history of your name, your family and how children's names are chosen. The teaching of vocabulary using pictures on different pages was incredible. I found myself anticipating what new words I was going to be introduced to next. The artwork, artifacts, and the memorable photos gave me insight to your family and culture. Adding your website where we as readers can find out what our Ghanaian name is/was a great way to end the book. I can't wait to share it with students and colleagues.

"This is a super book for any classroom or home! Thank you so much @ekuwah

This is a lovely book, chock full of information. It tells the story of more than just the author and her family - it will appeal to everyone who is interested in cultural heritage. The artwork is engaging, and the writing is clear and inviting. The author also explains the origin and meaning of many words which may not be familiar to American readers. This work invites others to explore their own cultural history and the important meanings of names and traditions within their families.

Ekuwah Mends Moses comes from a rich Ghanaian and African American legacy of artistic work, culture, and family togetherness. I celebrate her capturing culturally significant art pieces and this family legacy for generations to come. This book showcases and places emphasis on name meanings, their telling a story, and the roots of cultural pride. This is a book to be celebrated; it honors a mother with immense impact and a parental influence that still resonates in the living and for generations to come. It’s a tale of Ekuwah’s line of the Mends family and a fascinating read.- Effuah Mends Sam (proud sister of Ekuwah)
