5 Star Review by Readers’ Favorite
You Can Call Me Katelyn by Keri T. Collins is about a little girl, Katelyn, whose actual name is Carly Ashley Myers. Her parents decided to name her Carly after a singer. She was too small to speak and cried and cried because she did not like her name. The little girl was called by all sorts of names like Cutie, Baby Cakes, and Beautiful, but rarely did anyone call her Carly. Her mother shortened it to Car and the little girl was not happy. She decided to change her name, but how did she do it? Read the story to find out.
‘It is always possible for one small SPARKLE of action on one ordinary day to alter the shape of everything that follows.’ The story conveys positive messages to young readers and teaches them self-love, compassion, and honesty. The story also shows readers how to transform their world and make a difference. The illustrations by Marcia Adams Ho are charming and illuminate the story and characters by breathing life into them and giving a good pace and movement to the story. It is a lovely story to make children confident when it comes to making changes and being their true authentic selves. It is a good story for parents and tutors to encourage children to make positive changes and live life wholeheartedly.
