Jennifer Starkman, July 7, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer Starkman)
This sweet, heartfelt story is one that every child will relate to. After all, doesn?t every child with a common name at some point long for a more unusual appellation and vice versa?
Little Chrysanthemum the mouse adores her name. She loves the way it sounds and looks, and thinks it is absolutely perfect. But when Chrysanthemum starts school, she finds that having an unusual name can be a burden as well as a blessing, when some of the other children start to tease her.
Chrysanthemum is a wonderful story about names and identity, self-confidence and self-image. It is written in a way that really speaks to kids, and delivers its message with a minimum of sermonizing and a neat, cheerful little twist at the end.
