I have been so excited to choose books for this weekly opportunity. I have been gravitating towards the well-loved authors and books, in hopes that the kids will be able to easily find the books or authors again.
Today I plan to read, Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes.
Little Chrysanthemum has a lot of personality- kids can't get enough of her!
Here's an excerpt:
Chrysanthemum loved the way her name looked when it was written with ink on an envelope.Chrysanthemum goes to school and wilts when the other students find reasons to make fun of her unusual name. An eccentric (and lovely) music teacher helps the students to see the positive side of Chrysanthemum's wonderfully unique name.
She loved the way it looked when it was written with icing on her birthday cake.
And she loved the way it looked when she wrote it herself in fat orange crayon.
Chrysanthemum, Chrysanthemum, Chrysanthemum.
I hope the kids like this one as much as I do; it's certainly tried and true!
