A rose by any other name...

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.

Scrumdillydo it:

*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!


  1. I love this idea so much (as a former child-who-hated-their-name, I wish that someone would have told my parents this advice)

  2. I like this article so much. I wish it can be true in my life. Please try to play with bandar judi bola . Thank you sir

  3. You’re so cool! I do not believe I’ve read anything like that before. So great to discover somebody with some original thoughts on this subject matter. Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up. This web site is one thing that’s needed on the web, someone with some originality!
