The Daisy Series
Daisy’s Perfect Word
Daisy likes picking lemons on sunny days, playing kickball and making long dandelion chains. But more than any of these things, she absolutely loves words. She even compiles lists of her favorites in a green notebook covered with purple polka dots! When Daisy’s beloved teacher Miss Goldner makes a big announcement, Daisy decides to give Miss Goldner a wonderfully original gift. It is a gift so special that only Daisy — after much searching — could possibly find it.
Daisy’s Defining Day
Daisy likes singing loudly, baking cookies and making friendship bracelets with her best friend, Emma. But more than any of these things, she loves words. When Miss Goldner teaches her class about alliteration, Daisy has a terrific time coming up with wonderful word combinations. Then someone calls her Lazy Daisy, and suddenly words are a problem. Daisy needs a new nickname! But how will she choose between the many words that describe her? With delightful determination, Daisy delves deep to find herself a name that’s just right.
Daisy’s Big Night
Daisy likes running barefoot, painting pictures and going to the mailbox to get the day’s mail. And more than any of these things, she loves words. But how can she turn that into her special talent for the Student Showcase? The inspiration she needs arrives in the mail – an invitation to a poetry party! The fun of creating her own poems sparks a delightful solution, and a splendid end to the school year.
