Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

Lexile Level: 460L


The story is based on a little girl’s journey of dealing with her very unique name. She starts loving her name, she ends up getting teased about her name at school. Eventually with the help of her teacher, Chrysanthemum is able proudly love her name again.


I would read this to talk about bullying and show that everyone  is special and that we need to be accepting of others and yourself for who we are as individuals.
