 Girl Smelling Flowers

I’ve never met a Hannah that I didn’t like. Maybe I’m biased, but I think all Hannahs are pretty swell people. It doesn’t hurt that the name is beautiful. It’s just a fact that the name Hannah is one of the best names out there. Don’t believe me?

Well, then here is a list of a few wonderful Hannahs with a reason why they are great: 

8.25 Hannahs NightHANNAH’S NIGHT
By Komako Sakai
(2013) 

When Hannah wakes up in the middle of the night, her sister and parents are still fast asleep. Hannah and her cat decide to entertain themselves. They explore the house without anyone to tell them no. This book’s beautiful and unique illustrations compliment the elementary language while honoring the author/illustrator’s Japanese culture. 

Why this Hannah is awesome: She’s a toddler that doesn’t wake her parents up in the middle of the night and is potty trained. Can you say miracle? 

 

8.25 Hannah SparklesHANNAH SPARKLES: HOORAY FOR THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
By Robin Mellom
(2019) 

It’s the first day of first grade, and Hannah is ready. She has her sparkly pens, her butterfly net, and her best friend, Sunny. But what happens when Hannah is forced to sit across the room from Sunny? Will she be able to make new friends? Or will it be too hard? 

Why this Hannah is awesome: She’s a great listener and has a butterfly net.

A BUTTERFLY NET.  

 

8.25 Hanah DuckHANNAH DUCK
By Anji Yamamura
(2008)

Hannah Duck is pretty happy and relaxed. Except on Sundays. On Sundays, Hannah goes for a walk. This doesn’t sound so bad, except for one thing: Walks terrify Hannah. Luckily, she has good friends to help her overcome her anxiety. 

Why this Hannah is awesome: She tells her friends about her feelings.  

 

8.25 Hannah and SugarHANNAH AND SUGAR
By Kate Berube
(2016) 

Hannah sees her friend’s dog, Sugar, after school every day. This sounds pretty great, until you find out one problem: Hannah is afraid of dogs. Then one day Sugar goes missing. Will Hannah help find Sugar? 

Why this Hannah is awesome: She faces her fears.  

 

8.25 Hannahs Tall OrderHANNAH’S TALL ORDER: AN A TO Z SANDWHICH
By Linda Vander Heyden
(2018) 

This book, told in rhyme, follows Hannah and her lunch order. She asks for enough things on her sandwich to cover the alphabet. Her request is enough to make McDougal, the chef, sweat. This is a great read for those who want a little laugh while learning the alphabet.  

Why this Hannah is awesome: She’s a ginger, is a master rhymer, AND. SHE. CAN. EAT.
