Chrysanthemum By Kevin Henkes

By Kevin Henkes

Chrysanthemum was absolutely perfect from birth and she loved her name but when she went to  school,she started thinking her name was absolutely dreadful.She hated school.

Victoria,Rita and Jo teased her all day,”you are named after a flower”,”your name can scarcely fit on your name tag’,”’your name has 13 letters” that’s half of the letters of the entire alphabet.

What will she do?. Who will help her?

I loved the author’s use of language ,”Chrysanthemum wilted”. This book is perfect for teaching character.
