Grades pre-K through 3 (and beyond)
Chrysanthemum is anxious to go to school for the first time ever. When she gets there, all of the girls make fun of her name. Chrysanthemum’s parents support her, but make her keep going to school, where she learns about much more than just reading and writing.
My Rating: 5 stars
This book is as much artwork as it is a story. In the story, the reader passes through the country, and into the city, visiting many places. When the book is flipped, the reader takes the trip back, viewing the pictures from a different, yet brilliant point of view.
My rating: 4 stars

I love Click, Clack, Moo and Chrysanthemum! I’ll have to check out the other two as well.
Chrysanthemum is one of my favorites too! I love Kevin Henkes! I’m particularly fond of the Lilly books.
Yes, Lilly has quite the personality!
