ED 411-Chrysanthemum

Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

This is a wonderful book about self-confidence. In this story Chrysanthemum must learn that being different is not a bad thing. I would implement this book in my classroom by having students make anagrams out of their names using words that describe them. I would use this book to encourage students to embrace their names as part of what makes them individuals. This book is intended for K, 1st, and 2nd graders.
