Younger brother Martin shares his excitement about learning to pedal his tricycle. Throughout the story, Martin shares the value of friendship not only between siblings but also with others. In addition to the theme of friendship, the book has an implicit theme of Childhood Apraxia of Speech. This book continues two years after hi, My nAMe is MiLes, and four years after hi, My nAMe is MiLLy ended. Each of the books in the hi, My nAMe is series are written to standalone. However, the progression of Malcolm’s recovery becomes more apparent when read sequentially.


“Another great book in the series of books featuring Malcolm, a child with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS), and his siblings. It provides a look into the everyday life of a child with CAS and his experiences through the eyes of his siblings. hi, My nAMe is MArtiN is a wonderful narrative told from the perspective of Malcolm’s youngest sibling, and the lens of ‘normalcy’ through which he views his older sibling with CAS. This empowering story is a useful resource for families and therapists alike, looking to both encourage and foster self-confidence in a child with CAS, or other special needs.”
