          In my opinion the book chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes is a great book. I like it because chrysanthemum is a nice girl.I don't like it because kids are bulging chrysanthemum.One of the reasons is a kids sed this “a chrysanthemum is a flower “you should get this book.

              An amazing classic about the golden rule. I read it ever since I started school, an unbeatable story.

                chrysanthemum is about a mouse who thinks her name is the best until she goes to school. Rita,Joe,and Victoria make fun of Chrysanthemum's name. Do you think things will get better read to find out my favorite part is when Chrysanthemum is in the tree and her dad calls her for dinner. I would recommend this book to any kindergartner who has a long name because the kid in kindergarten can relate to Chrysanthemum.
