Daisy Dawson is On Her Way (series #1) PDF Print E-mail

What You Need to Know:
• Daisy Dawson is a terrific new addition to the early chapter book category of children's literature .
• We have placed Daisy Dawson in our Reader JR reading level, a safe place for newly independent readers. However, it does have some sophisticated vocabulary, so do check in with your young reader .
• This is a sweet adventure story with a safe ending, nothing too scary here.
• Little girls will have a good role model in Daisy, who is brave, kind and spunky.
Sweet Book Summary:
After Daisy Dawson's mother pleads with her not to dawdle, to please not be late like she was three times last week, Daisy thinks to herself, "Late three times. That meant she had actually been on time twice. Not too bad." You just have to love a character whose glass is so half full.

The story, characters and illustrations are all that appealing. Daisy, marching to her own drum, goes to school, where her teacher is always trying to reign her dreamy self back to the lessons. Along the way, Daisy realizes she can communicate with the animals around her.  With this new found ability, Daisy is as busy as ever communicating with the class hamsters and the ant hiding under her chair, much to her teacher's chagrin. When Boom, the large hound dog who Daisy passes every morning on the way to school, goes missing, Daisy and the animals must save him before the Dog Catcher does away with him.
