Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

I think this book is good for students when learning about new and unique names. I think it would be good to use at the beginning of the school year when learning about acceptance. The students can learn that each person is unique and special in their own way and we will not make fun of others because they are different from us. I would read the book and then give them an activity sheet in which they will have to go and find out three new things about three other classmates. I believe this book could be read to 1st to 4th graders. The Lexile Level is 460L.
