Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

This is a very cute children's book that will teach children they are all unique in some way and that their name is handpicked by their parents and very special, no matter what is it or how long it is. I would read this book to my students and then do an activity where the students could tell me how many letters are in their name and I would chart it. When finished, the students would see that some students have very short names and some students have very long names and that's okay. You can also do a flower craft with this book and have the students write the letters of their name in each flower petal. This is a very cute, CUTE book! I would use this book with any students ranged from Kindergarten to 2nd grade.
