About this title


Abi is no different from the other students in her fourth grade class at least she wants to believe. But with a name like Abimbola, she sticks out like a sore thumb and is often teased and bullied. When Abi becomes a big sister for the first time, she fears her parents will give the baby an uncommon name like Abimbola. To Abi s surprise, she has to wait an entire EIGHT days until the Naming Ceremony to find out! Abi soon begins her adventure to unfold the secret behind her baby sister's name, but what she discovers along the way is SO MUCH MORE!


Through The Naming Ceremony, author Bernae Okegbenro presents readers with an extraordinary gift, a peek into the rich tradition of welcoming a child into the Yoruba culture. In the beautifully illustrated children's book, readers will experience young Abimbola s anxiety over her unusual name and her curiosity about the name to be bestowed upon her baby sister. Although told through the eyes of a child, The Naming Ceremony delves into subjects that will benefit people of all ages, from all backgrounds. Cultural beliefs and values, ethnic misconceptions, family honor and responsibility, self esteem and acceptance all are addressed in this book. The Naming Ceremony also can be a treasured resource and teaching tool on diversity, cultural differences and global traditions for teachers seeking fresh material to enlighten students. The book, partly based on the Georgia author's personal experience with the naming of her daughter, is just the first of a number of Abi's Adventures. Readers of The Naming Ceremony undoubtedly will look forward to the next installment. --Jenise Griffin Morgan, The Florida Courier
