Cummings, Mary (2006). Three Names of Me. (Gr. 2-4)

Ada is a girl who was adopted from China. She has three names: one given by her mother, one she received at the orphanage, and one her American parents gave her. Ada explores each of her three names and their importance to her. Beautiful illustrations accompany the text. There are ideas for scrapbooking at the end, as well as a section where Ada lists her favorite things. This is a great book to share with a child who is interested in learning about Chinese culture and heritage.
