Tori's Favorite Tales

This blog is to help me remember all the great books I want to have in my future classroom!


Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

This is another one of my favorites! It's about a cute little mouse named Chrysanthemum who gets fun of by her classmates because she is named after a flower. The class picks on her until they find out their super awesome teacher is named after a flower as well. I love the illustrations and the story behind it. This story lists out different types of flower names so it could help teach students about the flowers, as well as to not make fun of people whether it be their name or the way the look, etc. Could be a good beginning of the year book. I looked it up and this book is said to be on the 2nd grade level.
