Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

I love this book because it is another one that helps develop and bolster students' self esteem. This book is basically about a little mouse who was made fun of because of her unusual name. Throughout the book, she was ridiculed. It wasn't until the end of the book that she discovers that it is good to be unique and it is something to be proud of. Like A Bad Case of Stripes, this book is important to have in the classroom because it encourages students to take pride in their uniqueness. This book could be read to literally any age.
