PRAISE FOR My Name Is Blessing:
“This expressive picture book, based on a real family, lovingly tells a hard story with a twist.
It’s difficult to broach poverty, disability and custody issues in so few pages without sounding maudlin, but Walters manages by speaking simply…. With dignity and quiet acceptance, this story illustrates that blessings, like family, can take unexpected forms.”
– Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews
“Lyrical language is matched by expressive acrylic illustrations that capture the emotional text.”
– School Library Journal
