Pawtucket's Delgado releases children's book on affirmations

Pawtucket’s Magda Delgado released her first children’s book, “My Name is King,” which was co-illustrated by her son Jovani Delgado, right, on Mother’s Day. The book explains positive affirmations and self-love to children while positively portraying young people of color.

PAWTUCKET – As a Cape Verdean immigrant who’s lived in Pawtucket since the age of 4, 33-year-old Magda Delgado said she wrote the children’s book, “My Name is King,” to teach affirmation and give representation to people of color.

“My Name is King” tells the story of a young boy, King, watching his mother speak affirmations to herself in the morning, and explaining the importance of self-love. The mother teaches the son how to do those affirmations, and in turn, instructs the reader.
