Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-K—Counting down the days before Nana comes to visit her island home, young Daisy describes how she fills her time. Sailing, tea parties at the shore, rocking in the hammock, and playing tag all make the wait a bit less tedious. When Nana arrives, Daisy is ready to tell her about her various activities: firefly hunts, a ferry ride to get groceries, etc. One page shows Daisy and her pals stripped down to their undies, dancing in a tidal pool. Hogan's sampler of island life will get vacation juices flowing. The simple sentences and childlike focus stay true to the narrator, and children will appreciate the recurring appearance of the calendar and the red "X" for each passing day. The realistic charcoals and pastels offer texture, and colors vary to reflect moods and times of day.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
