Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Daisy is growing up and ready to test her independence. And of course, along with growing up comes curiosity. Both of these together offer Daisy an adventure. Daisy is an adorable baby duckling who finds it hard to comply with mama duck's command to stay close. Daisy quickly finds herself all alone and frightened, but just as Daisy fears the worst, mama duck appears. Daisy learns that her adventures can continue while she stays securely at her mother's side. This board book is excellent for preschool classes because of the fun and colorful illustrations. Preschoolers are sure to relate to curiosity and to having one's own agenda while learning a valuable lesson: to listen and stay close to mom! 2001, Little Brown and Company, Ages 2 to 4.
— Cheryl Lecroy
Children's Literature - Linnea Hendrickson
In this effectively illustrated, gently told cautionary tale for very young children, Mama Duck urges Daisy to stay close and come along, and although Daisy tries, her curiosity gets the better of her. She chases dragonflies and bounces on lily pads, until she suddenly finds herself frighteningly alone, a little golden figure almost overwhelmed by the rich greens and blues of the pond and its rushes, in which mysterious creatures lurk. The pacing, the flow of language, the suspense, and the emotions communicated through words and pictures make this a satisfying picture book.
School Library Journal
PreS--"Come along, Daisy," says Mama Duck, but distractions abound and, like any toddler, Daisy can't help lagging behind. Stopping to hop across lily pads with a frog, she is left all alone. Suddenly the sun-drenched pond seems a little frightening, until Mama appears at just the right moment. The inquisitive duckling is an expressive splash of yellow in Simmons's blue-green pondscapes; the story unfolds in a series of watery panoramas amid bold forms and broad strokes of color. Art and text work inseparably here to create a winning character parents will find endearingly familiar and children will know as one of their own. Both cautionary and reassuring, artful and artless, this is a gem of a story and a masterful piece of picture-book artistry.-Marcia Hupp, Mamaroneck Public Library, NY
Kirkus Reviews
This cautionary tale from Simmons explores no new terrain, though the duckling Daisy does. As Daisy and her mother go for a morning float, the mother advises Daisy to stay close. "I'll try," Daisy chimes, but there are just too many delights to partake in: minnows, dragonflies, lily pads, frogs. So rapt is Daisy that she loses sight of her mother. Daisy's world becomes a menacing place: Pike lurk in the shadowy depths, a raptor screeches in the sky above. Daisy hides, but something rustles and "is getting closer, and closer, and CLOSER." Just when preschoolers will be at the edge of their chairs comes the revelation that the threat is the mother duck, back to find her offspring. This picture book has just enough suspense, without being too scary; deep green reeds dominate the splotchy, roughly textured painting. The dramatic images can be viewed from a distance, making this an appealing read-aloud for story hours. (Picture book. 3-7)

    enjoyable for children and parents alike!

    I purchased this book at our school's yearly book fair for my infant daughter. It is the one book that entertained and kept her attention from beginning to end. Now 21/2 years old, it is still her favorite book hands down. She knows the words to the story by heart and is now sharing the book with her 4month old brother! Mom and Dad are not bothered reading this story over and over again since it teaches an important lesson and the illustrations are so vivid and bright. A must for every child's library!

    Highly reccommended!

    This book is the gem of my 2-year-old daughter's library. We first discovered this book at the public library and knew immediately that it belonged on our Christmas list. Daisy the duckling is inquisitive and adventuresome, like a toddler. The story reflects the intimate relationship between a mother and young child and the strong need that child feels for mama. Daisy has fun and learns a valuable lesson. The illustrations in this book are as beautiful as any art found in a museum.

    Beloved Book for Two-Year Old

    Our two-year old little boy loves this book! We checked it out from the library and decided we had to purchase one for ourselves as he wants to read it every day. He relates to the story-line and it has come in handy to remind him not to stray too far when we are out shopping.
