Review:
Kevin Henkes' children's books are popular because children see themselves mirrored in the pages, even if the characters are mice. The video rendition of three of those stories sparkles with personality and humor. Chrysanthemum, a mouse child, is teased by her Kindergarten classmates because she is named for a flower. She ultimately blossoms in this story of self-esteem and family love. Also included are the stories of Owen, who simply cannot give up his blanket, and A Weekend with Wendell, a tender tale of learning to play together.
