Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Wendy Pollock-Gilson
Hooray! A Daisy board book just right for babies and toddlers. In this charming addition to Come Along Daisy! and Daisy and the Egg, Daisy plays with butterflies and chases the fish in her pond. After a full day of playing Daisy snuggles up under her mother's soft, warm wing ready to sleep. Bright pictures of a happy little duck with oversize feet combined with a reassuring message make this an appealing story for young children and their parents.
School Library Journal
PreS Daisy returns in an oversized board-book format. Children will recognize Simmons's charming illustrations from Come along, Daisy (1998) and Daisy and the Egg (1999, both Little, Brown). Here, the little yellow duckling "likes to play with the butterflies/and dance around the reeds" and "swim under water and/chase fishes through the weeds." But what she likes most is to sleep under Mama Duck's "soft, warm wing." In Go to Sleep, on three gorgeously rich and bright double-page spreads, Mama gently says, "Go to sleep, Daisy." But Daisy can't, because she hears the bats flit, the moths flutter, the swallows swoop, the owls hoot, the reeds creak, and the mice squeak. When, on the final pages, Mama whispers for her to "Look how bright the moon is," Daisy can't; she's fast asleep! The truly outstanding illustrations will capture the attention of babies, and the gentle, minimal text will appeal to toddlers with short attention spans.
