Chrysanthemum is excited about starting school until she is teased about her name. Luckily, a sensitive and perceptive teacher is there to help.

Precious, priceless, fascinating, and winsome! Reading this as an adult, I recognize so many of the illustrations from childhood and am struck by how influential this book must have been on my kiddo brain. An absolutely classic back-to-school and be-yourself book that teaches compassion and strength of character like few others.

A delightful book about a young girl with a very different name. Bullying is touched upon as well as compassion. Cute ending! You'll want to read it twice!!

Very sweet story about a girl who is teased at school because of her unusual name. Could have used a bit more of Chrysanthemum sticking up for herself and a bit more of her classroom teacher putting a stop to the teasing. This book was written long before the bullying discussion was en vogue, so it may seem outdated and incomplete to some. Still a darling book with charming illustrations and a good message.

A great introduction to the hurt of teasing for children and the self-consciousness of elementary school. Adorable illustrations that will be well loved by readers. Definatley more geared towards young girls.
