Event description

Description

To encourage children to think, write and talk about their families, much like Rick Bragg does in many of his books, Roswell Reads is bringing a book reading and children's activity to the community. By helping children explore how they got their name --- through reading, art and personal interaction --- program leaders will encourage discussion of family life and traditions.

Chrysanthemum is the classic story of a young mouse who isn't quite sure if she likes her name. One day her name is perfect and the next day it's not. Throughout the book, Chrysanthemum learns more about the origin of her name and why her family chose it for her.

Written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes, the nationally bestselling and celebrated creator of Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, Owen, and Kitten's First Full Moon, Chrysanthemum is a funny and honest school story about teasing, self-esteem, and acceptance to share all year round.

The popular picture book was named a Notable Book for Children by the American Library Association. Chrysanthemum is available for checkout through the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System.
