Published: Greenwillow Books - December 30th, 2008

On tough days I reread this book and remind myself that sometimes all you can do is put on your best, most pocketed raincoat and go face the world. Chrysanthemum is a childhood favorite and deserves a spot on any family bookshelf! A sweet, fun read, and great for opening conversations with children about bullying, friends, and difficult to pronounce names.
