Yes but a Chrysanthemum is a different story!
Written & Illustrated by Kevin Henkes
Published by Green Willow Books 1996
I adore this book more than I adore bright yellow mums! This is a perfect story for you to read to the kidlet that dislikes her or his name so much that they wilt.
*Have a read through and then talk about how you came to name your wee ones the names you gave them.
*Work on some more acrostic poems.
*Figure out how many words can be made from the letters of your names.
*Get a pack of Mums seeds and plant them with your kidlets.
*Get a bunch of Mums from the shop and dissect them. Press their petals or use them as paintbrushes.
*Make some chrysanthemum tea or cookies. The yellow & white petals are edible!
