Nathanael wants to change his name because it has a bump in it.

 What are the nicknames and pet names in your family? How did they come about? Have your children ever wanted to change their names? What motivated them to think about their names and what attracted them to the alternatives? How did you deal with the name change?

 Through this delightful picture book, parents and children can explore family relations, time, language and hidden messages in images.

 Through the worksheets that accompany the picture book, teachers can use the book in the classroom to work with the Australian Curriculum language and literature outcomes from Foundation to Year 3.
