    I loved the subplot, told only in the pictures, wherein the father consults archaic psychological texts in order to understand his daughter s distress.

    This is just a darling book Having saddled my eldest with a somewhat unusual name, I used to read this book to him frequently in the hopes that he would absorb the message that an unusual name is something you can be proud of I can t say for sure whether this story made a difference, but he likes his name and has never let anyone s teasing change his mind Chrysanthemum is so much fun to read I do wish that the epilogue was just a little

    I enjoyed this book and reading the discussion about it I liked the attention to detail in the illustrations For example, the books Dad was reading or the chalkboard with words I also smiled at the little mice sleeping, some of them with their arms strait up in the air Too funny I got a kick out of the students names listed on the page seeing Kay and Max next to each other I will have to share this book with Kaylee and her cousin Max when t

    For a basically sweet book, I think it s a tad too mean at the end, unnecessarily so But, it can be a helpful book for young kids who have unusual names or get teased for their names, or teased for any other reason Good also for kids who tease others or those who have witnessed other kids being teased In other words, just about every young child.
