My Name is Elmo is a 1993 Sesame Street storybook featuring Elmo. In it, he talks about himself and the things he likes. He enjoys being tickled and making funny faces. He loves all kinds of different colors. He likes playing horsie with Ernie and shadow tag with Big Bird. Elmo also reveals that his favorite number is four, since there are four letters in his name, as well as four wheels on his bicycle, four feet on his pet turtle, Walter, and he has four toy cars. He has visions of being either a fireman or an artist when he grows up.

The book was later retitled Tickle Me: My Name is Elmo and reprinted as a Little Golden Book in 1997, to cash in on the Tickle Me Elmo craze.

In 1999, Random House reprinted the book as a Junior Jellybean Book under the original title.

Random House published a new version in 2009 under the title Furry Faces: Elmo!, with a plush Elmo head on the front cover.
