    Sweet tales from grandmother to grandchild

    If a child has ever been upset at being told she's not pretty, Cathrin Hagey's book, The Little Daisy, offers an enjoyable tale and fun comfort. Just imagine waking up for the first time while the wind blows through the flowers and dandelions cluster round in a sea of gold. Delphiniums look down. Tiger lilies stand proud. And the little daisy's just got plain white petals. How boring, she thinks.

    Crows, ants, butterflies and more come to visit the little daisy and try to cheer her up. They tell stories and teach gentle lessons about the ways of nature. Of course, the daisy's not going to give up her misery easily, but eventually she'll learn who you are matters more than how you look.

    Cathrin Hagey's short chapbook (12 pages) is a pleasing little story, enjoyably told with a good lesson for little children. The story reads like a grandmother telling stories to her grandchild, and the older daisy just might be grandma's alter ego.



    Disclosure: I read this ebook as a judge in the Children Literature Fiction section of the Dan Poynter Global eBook Awards.
