Chrysanthemum, by Kevin Henkes is a Children’s book perfect for children in kindergarten to second grade, but people of all grades can enjoy the story. This book is about a little mouse who loves her name, Chrysanthemum, until she starts school. The children laugh at her and tell her that her name is too long, it scarcely fits on her name tag, and that she is named after a flower, how awful! Chrysanthemum wishes her name was something more simple like Jane, but her parents insist that her name is absolutely perfect. Finally, when the children find out that their wonderful new music teacher (that they simply adore) is named Delphinium, they change their mindset about Chrysanthemum. Now, all the children want a long name as well. Finally, Chrysanthemum knows her name is now absolutely perfect.

 

This is a wonderful book that I would read over and over again and would definitely recommend it to all of you. I would give it five stars since it teaches such a wonderful message to be confident in who you are.
