(BPRW) New Children’s Book Celebrates the Beauty of Diverse Names

(Black PR Wire) CLIFFWOOD, NJ - Kind Mirror Books is excited to announce the release of the latest picture book by authors L.A. Kimo and La Shauna Richardson, What a Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful Name! Written for children in grades K - 3, this confidence-inspiring tale emphasizes the value of strong self-esteem in children by encouraging them to celebrate the beauty of their name. The book highlights how the bond between a child and their caregivers is foundational to reinforcing a strong sense of self.  

In a five-star review, Readers’ Favorite calls the book’s artwork “eye-catching” and its storytelling “immersive and thoroughly captivating,” promising that the book is an “engaging tale that kids are bound to love.”  

What a Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful Name! is intentional in affirming the beauty of a child’s name in the experience of a Black family. According to the Cooperative Children’s Book Center, only 10% of children’s books feature African or African-American protagonists. With this offering, the authors aim to grow the number of books that reflect the experience of Black children and spark the imagination of all children. 

Co-author La Shauna Richardson said, “We wrote What a Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful Name! because we wanted to see more books that celebrated how Black families do life together in addition to those focused on historical figures and events. Whether you are planning for a baby shower, birthday, naming ceremony, the start of a new school year, or your child entering a new social situation, this book is a necessary addition to your home library. 

Author L.A. Kimo Richardson noted, “With efforts to discredit the value of diversity rebounding, this book unashamedly celebrates the daily actions that help all children to know that they belong. We believe so strongly in the importance of this book’s message that we have provided with each book a link to a free lesson plan and downloadable family tree template that families, schools, afterschool programs, and libraries can use to build on the book’s themes.”  

Just in time for the holidays, What a Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful Name! is available now on,,, and
