with Bookseller Humairah
Nur Humairah read Philosophy at the National University of Singapore and has been a bookseller at Wardah Books for many years. She is especially interested in fiction, both in Malay and in English, and in children’s books. She reads to her two wonderful children regularly and she is excited to be able to do the same here at Wardah Books to a wider audience.
About Your Name is a Song: Frustrated by a day full of teachers and classmates mispronouncing her beautiful name, a little girl tells her mother she never wants to come back to school. In response, the girl's mother teaches her about the musicality of African, Asian, Black-American, Latinx, and Middle Eastern names on their lyrical walk home through the city.
Empowered by this newfound understanding, the young girl is ready to return the next day to share her knowledge with her class. Your Name is a Song is a celebration to remind all of us about the beauty, history, and magic behind names.
