Rebecca Elizabeth Romm was named after her late grandmother Rebecca. She is annoyed when everyone compares her to her mother's mom, because all she wants is a name of her own. That changes when Rebecca's teacher assigns the class a research project on their names. Rebecca soon learns that most of her classmates were named after special people: some after family members like her, others after leaders, pioneers, musicians and even places. That night back at home, Rebecca asks her mother what made her grandmother so special. As she listens to her mother, Rebecca soon feels proud of her name and understands that being named after someone might not be so bad after all. Moreover, she learns that she is still unique and like no one else. My Name is Rebecca Romm, Named after My Mother's Mom is a meaningful story about love, self-acceptance and family values. As parents read this book with their children, it will spark conversations about the names in their own families.
