Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes, the nationally bestselling and celebrated creator of Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, Owen, and Kitten's First Full Moon, Chrysanthemum is a funny and honest school story about teasing, self-esteem, and acceptance to share all year round.

Chrysanthemum thinks her name is absolutely perfect—until her first day of school. "You're named after a flower!" teases Victoria. "Let's smell her," says Jo. Chrysanthemum wilts. What will it take to make her blossom again?

This popular picture book has sold more than a million copies and was named a Notable Book for Children by the American Library Association. "Perfectly executed in words and illustration, Chrysanthemum exemplifies Henkes's talent for creating true picture stories for young audiences."—The Horn Book

Supports the Common Core State Standards

Synopsis:

Hardly anyone noticed young Sally McCabe.

She was the smallest girl in the smallest grade.

 

But Sally notices everything—from the twenty-seven keys on the janitors ring to the bullying happening on the playground. One day, Sally has had enough and decides to make herself heard. And when she takes a chance and stands up to the bullies, she finds that one small girl can make a big difference.

Grammy-nominated childrens musician Justin Roberts, together with vibrant artwork from award-winning illustrator Christian Robinson, will have readers cheering for young Sally McCabe.

Synopsis:

Chrysanthemum loved her name . . . until she went to school. "I'm named after my grandmother", said Victoria. "You're named after a flower". Chrysanthemum wilted. Nothing got any better--until the students met their music teacher, Mrs. Delphinium Twinkle. Full color.

About the Author

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.
