Purple Butterfly Press
Picture Book
32 pages

What happens when you don't like your name? There's nothing you can do about it, right? But not Katelyn. She didn't like her original name, and she did something about it!

Join Katelyn on her journey as she teaches kids and parents both that if you decide to live your dream, nothing is impossible. Be who you want - it all starts with a choice, no matter your age.


This is a book which empowers kids while offering a lovely read.

Katelyn doesn't care for her name, but there's not much she can do about that. Or is there? Through a short and entertaining story, she shows that any dreams are achievable but take determination and a desire to actually pull them through.

While this tale centers on how Katelyn changed her name and brought others to identify her as such, the message rings clear for other dreams as well. Dreams can be achieved no matter what the age. But it takes effort and the decision to actually pursue the dream.

The illustrations are bright and colorful, and radiate a lot of fun and energy. The text is easy to understand and offers a nice story along the way too. There are activities as well to help young readers grasp the message and consider chasing their own dreams. In general, it's a nice read which leaves kids thinking too.
