Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this irresistible picture book, just a few words per page describe Daisy, a charming pooch who's a perfect role model for her three pudgy puppies and the chubby human baby who shares a home with them. The text on each spread is a study in subtlety. "Daisy teaches Delores how to set the table./ Baby learns, too" reads the caption for a depiction of the mother dog pulling down a laden tablecloth on the left, while the right side shows Baby wreaking havoc on a place setting. Baby even gleefully mimics Daisy's example of relieving herself on a sheet of newspaper. But when Daisy teaches her canine and human charges how to "fold the laundry" by strewing it around the backyard, Mommy steps in to provide her own style of pedagogy: "Now everyone learns to have a bath.../ because mommies know best of all." Kopper's (Daisy Is a Mommy) neatly framed illustrations are as winning and economical as her text. Daisy, with her long snout, tiny soulful eyes and squooshy postnatal body, is the epitome of doggy maternal love and duty. And the puppies and Baby's physical resemblance to each other is wonderfully comic. Ages 2-4.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-The star of Daisy Thinks She's a Baby (Knopf, 1994) and Daisy Is a Mommy (Viking, 1997) is back. In this new adventure, the bullterrier instructs her three puppies and the baby of the house in a multitude of tasks from opening the mail and setting the table to digging in the garden and cleaning up the garbage. Preschoolers will laugh at the lessons Daisy teaches the youngsters and their often messy results. The story reads aloud well, and the text is simple and repetitive enough for beginning readers. The soft, pencil illustrations reflect the lively humor and chaotic events described in the narrative. Daisy's many fans will be happy to see her back in action.

Format: Hardcover
Daisy is a hilarious little English bull terrier. The anvil headed dog teaches not only her puppies, but her owner's baby how to hop up on the sofa, open mail with their mouthes, pull off the table cloth and knock things over, drink from a bowl, tinkle on newspaper, dig holes in the garden and mess up the laundry. I laughed uproariously at the funny little mama dog lying under a copy of "Daisy is a Mommy" when she and her puppies were playing on the couch.
Daisy and Shiloh are my favorite literary dogs and Daisy will certainly find a permanent place in the hearts of all who encounter her.
Lisa Kopper is a gifted storyteller and illustrator. The baby, mother and the dogs come to vivid life in her delightful portrayals. I love her pre and postscript illustrations of what happens after Daisy lands in her mischief.

Format: Hardcover
All of Lisa Kopper's Daisy series are worthwhile additions to any child's collection. The pictures of Daisy the bull terrier, her gorgeous puppies, and the Real Baby, are beautiful and amusing, and the texts are witty and engaging. Our 18 month old baby adores them, but they are very appropriate for older toddlers and young children. I can't understand why the first book in the series, Daisy Thinks She's a Baby, is out of print. You don't have to be a bull terrier lover or a dog lover to love these books... but if you are a bull terrier lover, you will adore them.
