Yesterday I shared a great book by Kevin Henkes, Chrysanthemum. Chrysanthemum is the perfect book for back to school. It deals with bullying, making new friends, and being unique. You can read my entire review of the book here. It is also the perfect book to use when helping your child to practice the letters in his name. You can see some of our name activities as well as score a free printable name activity.

Today I have the privilege of hosting a giveaway for Kevin Henke's book Chrysanthemum. This book was generously donated by HarperCollins.
