My Name is Yoyo
Written by: Datia Ben Dor
Illustrated by: Avner Katz
Who am I? And what is my name? Readers join the amusing Yoyo on a humor-filled journey, encountering names and getting to know themselves:
A man is known by three names: The name by which his father and mother call him, the name by which other men call him, and the one he earns for himself; the most important name is the one he earns for himself.
(Midrash Tanchuma on Vayakhel, Siman 1)
