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 different The last page has the mean girl making a mis 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 different The last page has the mean girl making a mistake and Chrysanthemum giggling about it It s reasonable for Chrysanthemum to feel some satisfaction at her enemy s downfall and I would feel the same way , but I find myself wishing that Chrysanthemum had been the bigger mouse and not enjoyed Victoria s flub so much It ends the story on a slightly sour note that keeps the book from being absolutely perfect Very cute illustrations and a sweet portrayal of a loving, happy family soften a realistic portrayal of how mean and xenophobic children can be, and how easily a child can be excluded and made to feel abnormal. 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 they are old enough to read As for the story itsel 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 they are old enough to read As for the story itself, I agree with all points made in the discussion group here on goodreads in the Children s Picture Book Club I do believe the bullying should have been addressedI wasn t too thrilled that Chrysanthemum giggled at Victoria after her mistake That isn t something I want my daughter to think is okay.I loved Mrs Twinkle and her interesting dress Not sure I could have rocked that dress when I was pregnant, but she sure did Poor Chrysanthemum As a parent, I can surely relate to the teasing that children can dish out My son was much like Chysanthemum, confident in himself and excited about going to school But he had to deal with being teased too as son many kids are What I liked about the book was that it showed how much power grown ups have to deal with this sort of thing Mrs Chud ignored it, but dear Mrs Twinkle lifted Chysanthemum up as a child who should be envied, not made fun of And soon, the other k Poor Chrysanthemum As a parent, I can surely relate to the teasing that children can dish out My son was much like Chysanthemum, confident in himself and excited about going to school But he had to deal with being teased too as son many kids are What I liked about the book was that it showed how much power grown ups have to deal with this sort of thing Mrs Chud ignored it, but dear Mrs Twinkle lifted Chysanthemum up as a child who should be envied, not made fun of And soon, the other kids wanted to belike her.The illustrations were a little too cutesy for me, given the theme of bullying and teasing But I imagine for children, it might help draw them into the story and make the bullying feel less threatening 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.
