Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

This book is about a little girl named Chrysanthemum being made fun of at school because of her name. Every time she gets bullied at school, she goes home to get comforted by her mother and she starts to feel like her name is beautiful again. When the teacher finds out about the bullying, the teacher shares with the class that her name is based off of a flower also. The class then starts to tell Chrysanthemum how much they love her name and that they want the same name as a flower. This book is about bullying and acceptance. I would use this in my classroom as a way to bring up bullying and to show the students to love themselves.
