Joyful song : a naming story / Lesléa Newman ; illustrated by Susan Gal.

Newman, Lesléa, (author.). Gal, Susan, (illustrator.).

"What a happy day! Zachary's baby sister will have her naming ceremony. In the temple! With his moms, the congregation, and all their friends! He's so excited he can barely contain it. On the walk from their home, they meet neighbor after neighbor who want to know the baby's name. But - not yet! - his mothers tell him. The tradition is to have a great reveal at the ceremony. So they invite each neighbor to come along. A colorful, diverse parade blooms along the route, until... At last it's time, and Zachary gets to reveal his sister's name... What is it? A truly joyful moment for everyone."
