Chrysanthemum was born loving her name. But on her first week of school some mean girls at school tease her and make her wish for a new, shorter name.

This book teaches kids about accepting yourself for who you are, no matter what others say. It's not only a great book to read to little kids, but it's a great mentor text for older kids to write about.
