Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this universal tale of a toddler who loses track of her mother is written in an easy-to-read style. Some preschoolers may be frightened, but rest assured that there's a happy resolution.
Is It Any Good?
One of children's greatest fears is getting lost; young readers may experiences a few suspenseful moments until Daisy and her mother are happily reunited. Daisy ignores her mother's frequent reminders to stay close by and becomes intrigued with the wildlife on the pond.
COME ALONG, DAISY is clearly a picture storybook, but includes features of an easy-to-read book designed for beginning readers, such as large print, limited vocabulary, and illustration cues. The illustrations remain a major focal point. Broad strokes of green and blue paint bleed to the edges of each page, providing a feel of a pond, with its reeds and lily pads. The main character is shown from a variety of interesting vantage points including underwater, from the sky, as well as eye level.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
