Nuri Means Light


March 2018

One person's "funny sounding" name could be full of meaning for that family!

Nuri is excited about starting school; but, hey! all the other children seem to know what their names mean. Rafiki sure does know, so does Alba and Dayaal. Nuri's not sure what her name means, but she knows it's something great!

Tiger Stripe Publishing is teaming up with This Lil' Light of Mine to tell the story of Nuri and her friends as they share the meaning of their beautifully diverse names. This picture book is for children ages 2 – 5.
