    Title: Chrysanthemum
    Author & Illustrator: Kevin Henkes
    Grade Level: Second Grade

    Summary: Chrysanthemum is the story of a girl who loves her name. She loves the way it sounds and she loves the way it looks. In fact Chrysanthemum thinks her name is absolutely perfect. That is until she starts kindergarten. In kindergarten Chrysanthemum learns that her name was 13 letters long and can barely fit on her name tag. All of her classmates made fun of her because her name is so long and because she is named after a flower. On the playground, her classmates threaten to “smell” her and “pick” her. Now it is up to Chrysanthemum to find a way to ignore the bullies and learn how to love her name again.
