Publisher's Summary

She was a perfect baby, and she had a perfect name. Chrysanthemum. When she was old enough to appreciate it, Chrysanthemum loved her name. And then she started school. "I'm named after my grandmother," said Victoria. "You're named after a flower." Chrysanthemum wilted. Life at school didn't improve. In fact, it got worse. Then the students were introduced to their music teacher, Mrs. Twinkle. Mrs. Delphinium Twinkle. And suddenly, Chrysanthemum blossomed...

Amazing book!!!

My daughter always loved to read this book with me at home. And I purchased it on Audio and sometimes played it when I was driving. Allison would immediately stop chit-chatting and drew herself into the story. Never tied of it!

I read this when I was just a young girl, I <3 it.

When I was little I was picked on for my name, and when I found this book it made me feel good about my name. I highly recommend this book to parents who kids are being bullied, it'll teach them how to be happy with themselves and they'll know: They're absolutely positively perfect!

Classroom Favorite

I used this audible reading in my classroom, and they loved it! It is now one of our favorite stories, and of course they love Meryl Streep's narration.

Too Short!

I just wish there were more audiobooks for children that are somewhere between 15 minutes and an hour. my girls love these stories but they end to quickly. However it won't hold their attention if it's more than 30 minutes. I realize it's an age thing. I love Henkes. Just need about 15 more minutes😊
