Chrysanthemum is charming and timeless - a perfect back-to-school read.

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 This book was written long before the bullying discussion was en vogue, so it may seem outdated and incomplete to some.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.

That morning the students were introduced to Mrs. Twinkle, the music teacher.
Her voice was like something out of a dream, as was everything else about her.
Her students were speechless.
They thought Mrs. Twinkle was an indescribable wonder.
