Over de Auteur

Kevin Henkes was born in Racine, Wis. in 1960 and graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. One of four children in his family, Henkes grew up with aspirations of being an artist. As a junior in high school, one of Henkes's teachers awakened his interest in writing. Falling in love toon meer with both writing and drawing, Henkes realized that he could do both at the same time as a children's book author and illustrator. At the age of 19, Henkes went to New York City to get his first book, All Alone, published. Since that time, he has written and illustrated dozens of picture books including Chrysanthemum, Protecting Marie, and A Weekend with Wendell. A recurring character in several of Henkes's books is Lily, an outrageous, yet delightful, individualist. Lily finds herself the center of attention in the books Chester's Way, Julius, the Baby of the World, and Lily's Purple Plastic Purse. A Weekend With Wendell was named Children's Choice Book by the Children's Book Council in 1986. He recieved the Elizabeth Burr Award for Words of Stone in 1993. Owen was named a Caldicott Honor in 1994. The Year of Billy Miller was named a Newbery Honor book in 2014. (Bowker Author Biography) toon minder

This book is a charming picture book that follows the story of a young mouse named Chrysanthemum as she navigates the challenges of her first day of school. Chrysanthemum faces teasing from her peers because of her unusual name, but she learns to embrace her uniqueness with the support of her parents and an encouraging teacher. This book is a great resource for discussing themes such as self-acceptance, kindness, and the power of supportive adults in a child's life. In the classroom, teachers can use "Chrysanthemum" to facilitate conversations about respect, empathy, and celebrating differences. It can also be a starting point for activities such as name-related art projects or writing exercises that help students appreciate their own names and identities.… (meer)

This little mouse was so happy about herself and had encouraging parents. She was happy until she went to school and found that others thought her name was weird and not unique as her parents had told her. It was interesting seeing her go through the phases of trying to fit in with her new classmates.
