Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Daisy and the Egg is about a little duckling Daisy who experienced the hatching of her little cousins and brother. Daisy visited Aunt Buttercup¿s nest where she was sitting on her eggs as will as Daisy¿s Mama¿s single egg. Daisy¿s little cousins hatched first, but Mama Duck¿s little egg would not hatch. Daisy¿s momma soon gives up on the egg, but not Daisy. Daisy believes the egg will hatch so she stays behind to sit on the egg and it finally does.This is a cute little book about a duckling experiencing the entrance into life as well as the strength of believing. This book also has pretty illustrations. They appear to be painted to be illustrations. I also enjoy that the little duckling are not the same color which shows each one is unique. It is over all a cute book. This book has different teaching potential. This book could be used to how hard work and determination pay off in the end. I also feel this book could be used to show unique abilities in the different colored ducklings. I think with even older children you could use this book for painting in art. There are different blending of colors, different brush strokes and patterns. I think you could also use this book when you have a student having a little baby brother or sister.
