Written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes, the nationally bestselling and celebrated creator of Lilly''s Purple Plastic PurseOwen, and Kitten''s First Full MoonChrysanthemum is a funny and honest school story about teasing, self-esteem, and acceptance to share all year round. This picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It’s a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.

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
