My Name Is Sangoel - Karen Lynn Williams, Khadra Mohammed, Catherine Stock

Sangoel is a Sudanese refugee. He leaves his homeland with little besides his name, which has been handed down from generation to generation. When Sangoel arrives in the United States he feels confused and homesick. Joining the soccer team at his new school helps, but still, no one can pronounce his name. Tired of repeating My Name Is Sangoel (Eerdmans, $17), Sangoel has an ingenious idea to help his new friends say—and remember—his name. This book was written by Karen Lynn Williams (Galimoto) and Khadra Mohammed and illustrated by Catherine Stock (Galimoto, Gugu’s House). Ages 5-8. HWP
